Transportation of Illegal Drugs

Caught carrying drugs?

Drug trafficking charges are serious and can lead to severe penalties. In New York, transportation of illegal drugs, otherwise known as drug trafficking, is a serious offense that will carry severe penalties if you are convicted. It can include transporting cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin and illicitly obtained prescription drugs from one place to another. Typically, if you are found in possession of a large enough quantity of illegal drugs in your vehicle or other means of transportation, the assumption will be made that you are trafficking with the intent to sell. When it includes crossing state or international borders, you will be facing federal drug charges. Smaller quantities may only carry a possession of illegal drugs charge.

In any case, if you or someone you know has been arrested, or is being investigated for transportation of illegal drugs, you should waste no time in hiring a competent Brooklyn criminal defense lawyer to defend you against the charges. You could be facing incarceration, fines, probation, court ordered treatment programs, suspended drivers' license and a negative impact on your criminal record that will hamper your ability to find and maintain employment and housing options for years after a drug trafficking conviction.
