Drug Transportation Attorney Phoenix
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 cocaine, meth, heroin, 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 Phoenix drug crime lawyer to fight to defend the case and protect the rights of the accused.
