Drug Trafficking

Drug Trafficking

Contrary to popular belief, you can be charged with trafficking even if the alleged criminal activity does not involve crossing state or county borders. When charged with trafficking a controlled substance, under the laws of Massachusetts you are exposed to significant incarceration. Many trafficking charges have penalties that include mandatory state prison sentences of up to 15 to 20 years in prison. Incarceration of this length, plus the debilitating license loss and significant monetary fines that often accompany conviction for trafficking can change your life forever. Additionally, incarceration is often followed by parole or probation. That is why it is critical you speak with an attorney at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. as early in your case as you can.

Building A Defense Strategy

Being charged with trafficking does not always mean that the prosecution can support the charge. Often police will charge trafficking, only to realize later in the process that the substances, weight or other issue preclude prosecution. Sometimes initial police activity, such as a warrantless search, violated one or more constitutional rights. Additionally, if you have been charged in the district court, the District Attorney's office must indict you to sustain the charge, and only has a certain amount of time to do so.

Without an experienced and aggressive attorney at your side, you may miss opportunities during the case to reduce and eliminate certain charges, and thus reduce your overall exposure to incarceration.

Client Reviews
I hired Peter as my attorney for a very complicated case involving misidentification for an A&B case. Peter set expectations from day one and stuck to his plan. The case ended up going to a jury trial. Peter was thoroughly prepared and was able to prove the misidentification and won the case with a not guilty verdict on all counts… I would highly recommend the Bellotti Law Group to anyone who needs a lawyer.
★★★★★
Peter Bellotti is an outstanding lawyer. I am a professional who has never been in trouble with the law and I was arrested and charged under some very unfortunate circumstances. I was devastated and talked to numerous different high-rated criminal defense attorneys. Among them Peter Bellotti stood out, he seemed to genuinely care about my case and fully understand my concerns about my reputation… My case was dismissed and I would recommend him to anyone who needs top quality legal representation.

I am an anxious person by nature and when I was arrested last year I thought that my life was over. The charges were very serious and I felt helpless, devastated and embarrassed…After explaining the circumstances that led to my arrest, Attorney Bellotti told me that "the charges, while serious, were defensible…” Peter was the 4th lawyer that I met with and I am so lucky to have had him on my side. I will always be grateful to Peter and I would highly, highly, highly recommend him to anyone looking for an intelligent, creative, determined and skilled attorney. Michael
