Drug transportation involves the transport of illegal drugs from one point to another, usually across state lines or across a national border. It is a very serious drug-related crime that can carry extremely steep penalties. An Orlando Drug crimes lawyer is available to assist you if you have been charged with drug transportation, by providing you with legal defense that may help you avoid penalties such as jail or prison time.
Transportation cases can involve a wide variety of illegal drugs, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy,meth, and prescription drugs such as Oxycontin and Vicodin.
The penalties levied for such an offense depend on certain factors, such as the type of drug being transported, the amount of the drug found, and whether or not the accused has been convicted of prior drug-related offenses. A conviction on transportation charges can result in fines, probation, mandatory attendance at a drug treatment/counseling program, and time spent in jail or prison.
