Possible Consequences for Drug Trafficking in Brisbane, Queensland

The essence of a drug trafficking charge is that the offender is alleged to have ‘carried on a business’ of trafficking. In most cases, prosecutions for trafficking rely on evidence establishing a regularity of drug dealing, in conjunction with evidence of additional activities, such as product advertising or promotion, negotiating prices and terms, taking orders and arranging deliveries. Much of this evidence can be acquired from lawfully intercepted telephone communications via text messages, phone calls and encrypted social media messaging applications. Evidence can also be derived from covert police operations, such as surveillance, undercover police operatives and more.

The maximum penalty for drug trafficking in Brisbane, Queensland is 25 years imprisonment. Moreover, these charges are all dealt with in the Supreme Court. Fortunately, our criminal defence team has a wealth of knowledge and experience navigating through the complex court system. In fact, we take pride in successfully defending and advocating for our clients to achieve favourable outcomes.
