Woman sentenced to 10 years in prison for drug trafficking

A North Carolina woman was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison for her role in a drug trafficking ring. The investigation into the ring was coined Operation Rolling Thunder by authorities.

According to news reports, the defendant, a 37-year-old Meadows of Dan resident, was one of 23 people arrested as a result of the operation. She was accused of participating in a drug ring that delivered methamphetamine to the North Carolina counties of Guilford and Surry and the Virginia counties of Carroll, Grayson and Patrick. Of the 23 defendants arrested, 22 have already been convicted and sentenced to a combined total of 283 years in prison.

Ten law enforcement agencies took part in the investigation, which was focused on ending the methamphetamine trade in northern North Carolina and southern Virginia. Participating agencies included the Patrick County Sheriff's Office, the Grayson County Sheriff's Office, the Carroll County Sheriff's Office and the Surry County Sheriff's Office. They were assisted by the Virginia State Police, the Galax Police Department, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. Marshals Service.

Individuals charged with drug trafficking might benefit from exercising their right to remain silent and contacting a legal professional as soon as possible. A Raleigh, North Carolina, drug charges criminal defense lawyer may help protect a defendant's rights both before and during a trial. The lawyer might also challenge the prosecution's case and fight to get the charges dismissed or to win an acquittal at trial. In some circumstances, the lawyer may recommend negotiating a plea deal with prosecutors. This tactic might significantly reduce the charges and help the defendant obtain a lighter sentence.
