If charged with drug transportation, you are facing much more severe penalties than you would for a lesser charge, such as possession. That is why having a Fort Worth criminal defense attorney on your side is so important. The penalties depend heavily on the type and of drug, amount, location the crime took place, whether the drugs were transported across state lines, and whether or not you have a previous offense on your record.
Possible penalties for drug transportation charges include:
The severity of the penalties can easily increase if there are any aggravating factors involved. That is why it is so imperative that you begin working on your defense right away. For example, you can show that a police officer did not have the lawful right to perform the search and seizure that resulted in evidence being obtained against you.
This ultimately means you could get that evidence thrown out, making it nearly impossible for prosecutors to secure a guilty verdict. Another defense option would be to prove that you had no knowledge of the drugs and did not exercise any control over them. Again, without a proven advocate on your side, these defenses can be challenging to implement.
