Phoenix Drug Transportation Defense
Charged with Drug Transportation in Phoenix?
Arizona is considered a "gateway" state, or a route through which
drugs enter the country. This includes a variety of dangerous drugs such as
Ecstasy, LSD and other. These drugs are transported into and through the state
via plane, truck, car, mail and other methods. When one has been arrested
and charged with transportation of drugs, it is a very serious crime and
the penalties reflect the concern that the lawmakers of the state have
regarding drugs entering the state. The volume of the illegal substance
transported makes a difference on the penalty that one could receive if
convicted of the crime. If the drug transported is
marijuana, and there is over 2 lbs, you will be facing a Class 2 Felony. When convicted
of this crime the penalty could include up to 12 ½ years in state
prison. Any such crime requires the assistance of a lawyer to fight to
defend the case and protect the rights of the accused.
