Our West Covina drug crimes attorneys have successfully represented and won a number of cases involving drug sales and transportation charges. We understand the severity of being arrested or charged with a crime of this nature, and have a full understanding of how California drug laws affect the charges you are currently facing. At Coimbra Law Firm, we have represented a wide range of cases involving controlled substances.
To "transport" drugs means simply to move or carry drugs from one area or place to another. Charges involving the transportation of illegal narcotics are not affected by the distance which was allegedly travelled, but there are other factors considered. For example, the type of drug and the amount which was allegedly involved can affect the consequences you face if a conviction is reached.
To obtain a conviction against you for sales or transportation of a controlled substance, the prosecution must prove that:
It is not required that you had physical, tangible possession of the controlled substance for you to sustain a conviction for selling, furnishing, transporting drugs. This is because possession can be constructive, which means that although you may not be physically carrying the alleged drugs, you can still be found guilty.
Our West Covina drug sale and transportation crimes attorneys can aggressively attack the prosecutor's case and the credibility of its witness against you, particularly if he or she is an informant. We can help establish that the source of the arresting officer's information is wholly unreliable, leading to the dismissal or acquittal of your charge.
