Despite the representation of so-called “kingpins” in movies and TV, a kingpin who meets the legal definition of the term might not necessarily be pulling in obscene amounts of money due to their drug trafficking efforts.
The Kingpin Law involves profits of $75,000 or more in one year made by an organization involved in the sale and distribution of illegal drugs. If a person is involved in an organization, particularly if they are the head of the organization, and have made over $75,000, they will be charged accordingly under NYC law.
If you or a loved one has been charged with violating the Kingpin Law, an experienced Manhattan drug crime attorney can help. Call Paul D. Petrus, Jr. today to schedule a free initial consultation.
