Drug Trafficking And Transportation

While all drug offense charges are serious, those associated with drug transportation, also referred to as drug trafficking, are typically among the most severe, as they can involve:

  • Federal drug charges when transportation occurs across state or national boundaries
  • Charges of drug distribution or selling drugs, when large quantities of drugs are found and/or when the drugs in questioned are packed as though they are intended for sale (i.e., in smaller, individual portions)
  • Other criminal charges such as charges of money laundering, racketeering, etc.

Drug trafficking charges can be filed against an individual who is suspected of:

  • Possessing large amounts of an illegal narcotic (particularly if that drug is found to be packaged in such a way that would make it ready to sell)
  • Selling illegal drugs
  • Transporting illegal drugs (While transporting illegal drugs within the state of Colorado will lead to state-level drug trafficking charges, being accused of transporting illegal drugs across state or U.S. borders will result in federal drug trafficking charges, which are associated with far more serious penalties upon conviction.)

Defending Against Drug Trafficking Charges

In the event that you are charged with drug trafficking, it will be critical that you work with an experienced Denver drug crimes lawyer to ensure that your rights are fully protected and that you have the best possible chances of resolving your case as favorably as possible.

While the best defense against drug trafficking charges will depend on the specific charges filed against you (as well as whether you have a criminal record and other specific details of the case), in general, an experienced lawyer may be able to argue:

  • The drugs in question did not belong to you, and you had no knowledge that these drugs existed.
  • Police obtained knowledge of the drugs or seized the drugs through illegal means, which violated your Fourth Amendment rights that protect you against illegal search and seizure.
  • Some of the evidence against you should not be admissible in court because police violated your Fifth Amendment rights by failing to read you your Miranda rights before arresting or questioning you.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
