Drug Transportation Attorney Los Angeles
Health and Safety Code 11352 prohibits the transportation of substances listed in sections 11054, 11055, and any Schedule III, IV, and V controlled substances. This statute usually is triggered when a person is in possession of drugs, there is indicia of possession for sale, and this person is transporting. Federal statutes usually are triggered when one transports drugs across state lines. In the Federal system this is called Trafficking. Like with other types of crimes, Federal Sentencing Guidelines dictate much higher punishment than their State counterparts.
Drug Transportation Lawyer Los Angeles
We’ve had countless cases where our clients were accused of transportation. The key to resolving many of these cases is to inquire whether the search to find the drugs was done properly. If not, then all of the drugs found are deemed inadmissible, and the case usually goes away. In one such case, police officers stopped our client’s vehicle and conducted a search. In the trunk they found a bag which had a container of fish food. They took out the container labeled as fish food and shook it. Fish food pellets made a sound like one would expect. They proceeded to open the container and to pour out all of the food pellets. The container had a false bottom which hid cocaine belonging to our client. The law says that the police may not open a container if it looks and feels like what it should be. Here, the container looked, felt and sounded exactly what it was, fish food. As such their search was improper, thereby violating our client’s rights.
