Transportation of Drugs
Transportation of Drugs | Criminal Defense Attorney for Metro Houston
Transportation of drugs happens when a person moves a controlled substance from one location to another. This is different from basic possession of a drug in that it involves transporting the controlled substance. Typically, the prosecution must prove that the defendant knew that the drugs were illegal and had control over them. Circumstances regarding the class of drugs, amount of the drugs and whether they were transported across state lines will influence the severity of the charges. Transportation of illegal drugs carry strict penalties, including possible jail and prison time, hefty fines and civil consequences. If you have been charged with transporting drugs in Metro Houston or anywhere in Texas, consult with an attorney experienced with the complexities of federal and state drug laws. Call the law office of Michael Lamson for a comprehensive review of your case involving transportation of drugs.
Defending Against Charges of Transporting Drugs
There are several actions an experienced criminal defense attorney can do to defend a client against charges of transporting drugs. If successful, charges can be reduced or eliminated completely. The way evidence was collected by law enforcement officers can be examined to determine if it was collected illegally, violating search and seizure laws. The motives and veracity of a witness or informant also can be examined. In addition, the facts of the case, including the amount of the controlled substance in question, can be critically evaluated to determine if they meet the standards of the particular criminal charge.
