Drug importation consists of the criminal act of transporting or carrying illegal drugs into another country. This is a very serious charge and is mainly brought against someone when the drug importation was on a large scale. Because drug importation charges mainly deal with crossing national borders and large-scale drug activity, they can be charged as a federal offense and penalized heavily. In such a case you need the help of a highly experienced attorney who has extensive experience in defending drug cases in federal court.
Drug Importation charges have become increasingly severe due to the increasing amount of drugs which have been crossing national borders. Controlled substances may include the following, and more: cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, prescription and medication. Factors which affect the severity of the charges include the amount of the drug and what type of drug.
If you are facing drug importation charges you could be made to serve years in prison, pay large fines, do community service and have a permanent criminal record which anyone can view.
