Drug Trafficking Lawyer
Possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking
When someone is arrested for drug possession and there is a substantial quantity of the drugs, then there could be an additional charge of possession of drugs with the purposes of trafficking. A drug trafficking conviction may result in serious penalties that could negatively impact your life for decades into the future. No matter if it is a simple charge of marijuana possession or something more serious like a possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, it is vital that you choose criminal law lawyers who have a reputation of fighting aggressively to defend your rights and winning. When so much is on the line, you can count on the criminal defense team at the Law Offices of R. Kent Haryett and Company to effectively defend your drug trafficking charges.
Our drug trafficking defense experience can put you at ease.
The criminal law lawyers at Haryett & Co. have successfully defended clients who have been arrested and accused of illegally trafficking such substances as Marijuana, Cocaine, Ecstasy, Methamphetamines, Heroin, Oxy Contin, Pain killers and Illegal prescription drugs.
In the Alberta drug trafficking criminal code, it is up for interpretation as to whether or not the evidence against you was obtained lawfully. Drug arrest evidence can’t be used against you if the police performed an illegal search and seizure to obtain the evidence. In preparing for trial, our lawyers attempt to refute the police investigation and prosecution’s case by examining the following:
- Was a proper search warrant issued?
- Were the terms of the search warrant executed properly?
- Was there sufficient probable cause to issue the search warrant?
- Was there sufficient probable cause to allow for a wire tap?
- Is the quality of the evidence against you questionable?
Aggressive criminal justice lawyers for drug trafficking charges
Drug trafficking laws in Alberta prohibit a person from trafficking illegal substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, crystal meth, cocaine, etc. Fortunately for many of our respectable clients, to prove possession and trafficking, the Crown’s prosecution team must prove that the charged party had both knowledge of the illegal substance and control over that substance.
Drug trafficking penalties for a guilty conviction can include, but aren’t limited to, fines, court-ordered treatment programs and significant prison sentences. If you or someone you know is trying to keep clear of a serious drug possession penalty or drug trafficking penalty, we invite you to contact Haryett & Co. Our criminal defence team has years of experience in successfully undermining the prosecution’s case by scrutinizing the drug trafficking arrest, the police investigation and the collection of evidence.
