Oakland Drug Transportation Attorney
Transportation of a Controlled Substance Charges in CA
Whether you are accused of transporting, trafficking, selling, manufacturing, or distributing drugs, you could be facing enormous fines and years—even decades—of incarceration. This charge could also trigger federal penalties. The prosecutor may not even have to prove that you actually transported drugs or manufactured them. All it takes is possessing a certain amount of narcotics, or allegedly volunteering to transport them, and you could face the full penalties for drug transportation.
When you face such dire accusations, you need to have a proven litigator on your side. We at the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed have built a nationally-recognized record of victories fighting for our clients, and our fierce dedication has beaten the odds time and again. We may be able to get your charges reduced or dismissed too.
Transportation of a Drug Penalties in California
While aggravating factors would definitely raise the penalties you could face, one of the key factors in your charge is the type of controlled substance that you are accused of transporting.
Your charge could vary a great deal depending on whether or not your case involves:
- Prescription drugs
What all of these drug crime cases have in common is that if a certain amount of a controlled substance is said to be in someone's possession, they could be presumed to have trafficked or transported narcotics, even if they really were for personal use alone. And in any type of case, even more rigorous penalties could be used against you if someone is said to have provided narcotics to a minor or to have possessed drugs with intent to sell in a school zone or a public place.
