Drug Transportation There's No Alternative 

Newport Beach Drug Transportation Lawyers

Dedicated to the Success of Our Clients in Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino & Los Angeles

Any drug crime accusation is not a matter to be taken lightly, but the circumstances become especially serious if you have been accused of transporting controlled substances. According to California State laws, merely carrying drugs in your vehicle can turn into a serious felony conviction. In fact, prosecutors are well-known for taking what would be a normal possession charge and blowing it far out of proportion.

Unfortunately, when it comes to drug cases, both the jury and the judge often succumb to stereotypical bias that the defendant is guilty. This is why you need powerful drug transportation attorneys in Newport Beach on your case.

Call us today at (844) 285-9559 so the Law Offices of Randy Collins can begin fighting for the justice you deserve.

What Does “Transporting Controlled Substances” Mean?

It may seem clear what the accusation of “transporting controlled substances” entails, but it is crucial to know every facet and angle which the prosecutor will try to use against you. According to California State Laws, the moment you are found with illegal substances in your automobile, you instantly run the risk of also being accused of illegal transportation. It does not matter how short a distance you are traveling, or whether you are using a car, motorbike, or any other form of transportation. All of these modes are equally subject of being penalized.

Penalties That Result from a Criminal Charge for Transportation

While California HSC Code §11352 states that whoever has been involved in transporting drugs is liable to be punished, not all penalties have the same severity. Particularly if you are being accused of a driving felony for the first time, you actually have options available that are less damaging in the long run.

Some of the possible penalties which new offenders could receive include:

  • A period of formal probation
  • Three to five years of being incarcerated under the California realignment program
  • Three to nine years of being imprisoned if you carried drugs across at least two different county lines in California

Defense against a Drug Transportation Accusation

A prosecutor may be able to prove that you were aware of a drug’s presence on your person, or even that you understood the drug’s nature and potential risks. However, trying to demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that you were transporting the drugs with the intention of receiving payment is much more difficult to prove.

Our powerful criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Randy Collins are well aware of this defense strategy and can provide an extensively detailed defense solution so you may not have to face the tremendous penalties that come from a conviction. When you have the aid of experienced drug transportation lawyers in Newport Beach, you can rest assured that we can fight for you with determination and empathy.
