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 an aggressive litigator on your side. We at the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed are passionate about 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.
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:
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 ordered 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.
No matter how daunting the charges may be, our criminal defense lawyer in Oakland has made its name by handling intensely difficult cases. Whether it is demonstrating that law enforcement officers did not follow search and seizure law, or that you did not knowingly participate in transporting controlled substances, we are prepared to analyze your case to find the strongest defense strategy.
