This is not a charge to take lightly. It can wreck your life for years to come. So, if you have been arrested on a charge of transporting drugs, the first thing you need to do is get legal help. And, your criminal defense lawyer will tell you that you should never talk to investigators or police officers without having legal representation by your side. This is because you may say or do something that can be held against you in court.
While this is typically a misdemeanor charge, it can have stiff penalties. A conviction on drug transportation charges can bring a 60-day driver’s license suspension. And a judge may decide to fine you between $1,200 and $2,000, depending on the circumstances of your case.
Your license could be suspended for a period of time up to 2 years. In addition, a judge could order you to spend one year in jail if he or she feels you deserve it.
So, as you can see, the charges are serious and you need legal help to get out of what could be a life-altering mess.
As your attorney, Michael Anzalone will let you know that prosecutors must prove that you knew the drugs were in your vehicle and that you transported them anyway. It must also be proven that you knew the exact location of the controlled substances in your vehicle and you had control over it. In short, you could have chosen not to take the drugs in your vehicle.
Your lawyer will want to make sure that the drugs weren’t found during an illegal search and seizure. The state’s search and seizure laws are extremely clear and this may be something that Michael Anzalone decides to build your defense case on.
As we work on your case, Michael Anzalone would like for you to become knowledgeable in the state’s Controlled Drug Act. This way you can participate in your defense case.
When you hire The Anzalone Law Firm, we will make your case a priority. We don’t judge you, we work to help you get a positive outcome, whether it is a plea deal or an acquittal from a jury during a trial.
