Leader of Narcotics Trafficking Network
If you are charged with being a Leader of Narcotics Trafficking Network in New Jersey, you are likely in for the fight of your life. In fact, you probably aren’t the one reading this because your bail may be incredibly high. If convicted, you are looking at life in prison. In other words, you need to bring everything you can against this charge to make sure that the rest of your life is not spent behind bars. A conviction of this crime does not merge with any other crime. That is, your sentences cannot be run together. That makes this charge even more serious.
The State must prove that the defendant has conspired with two or more other persons in a scheme or course of conduct to unlawfully manufacture, distribute, dispense, bring into or transport in this State a controlled dangerous substance. Thus, while the words trafficking network are in the offense itself, the network only has to be three people. However, those charged with these offenses are usually included in an indictment with much more than two people.
