Los Angeles Drug Smuggling Lawyer
A federal drug smuggling charge is one of the most serious types of narcotics criminal charges. Any type of illegal drug can be used in a drug smuggling case. Methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine and heroin are commonly smuggled in various amounts. Recently, even prescription drugs have become common in trafficking cases. This could be the result of their availability over the internet. Prescription medications such as anti-anxiety medications like Xanax or Valium, and painkillers like Oxycotin, Oxycodone and Vicodin are commonly purchased in large quantities and sold for a profit.
In many cases, a drug smuggling accusation is part of a drug conspiracy charge. This means that you are being accused of committing a federal drug crime with another person. In federal court, the prosecutor may not need you actually sold the drugs or that a crime was even committed. They only need to provide evidence that two or more people conspired in an effort to commit a crime.
A drug smuggling conviction can lead to imprisonment, large fines, court cost and probation. A federal drug crime conviction can permanently impact tour future and your reputation.
