Choose Keegan Law for Illegal Drug Transportation Charges
Stay Informed with a Boston Drug Crime Lawyer
Since 1970 and the enactment of the Controlled Substances Act, the United States Government has striven to reduce the number of drug offenders who walk free by enforcing harsh penalties and discouraging future offenders. Possession, distribution, and trafficking have all been problematic over the years and have been combatted with severe legal repercussions. If a person is caught while transporting an illegal drug, they could face severe consequences depending on the type and amount in possession.
Some of these penalties include:
- Jail/prison between 1 and 20 years
- Fines between $500 and $500,000
- Periodic drug testing
- Driver license revocation
- Participation in a drug counseling program
An illegal substance can be transported in a number of ways, including by pedestrian, car, truck, train or airplane. Arrests can be made for drug transportation even if the alleged offender was not transporting the drugs themselves but aided another party in the act. If minors were involved, the penalties could be enhanced even more, subjected to the laws of Massachusetts.
