California Transportation of a Designated Controlled Substance Charges and Penalties
What is Transportation of a Designated Controlled Substance?
Any person who transports, imports into this State, sells, furnishes, administers, or gives away, or offers to transport, import into this state, sell, furnish, administer, or give away, or attempts to import into this state or transport, is guilty of transporting a designated controlled substance. A controlled substance is a drug whose purpose, or manufacturing is regulated by the United States. There are different levels of drugs which range from Schedule 1 to 5. If the drug was prescribed by a physician, dentist, podiatrist, or veterinarian then it does not fall under this statute.
Examples of a Schedule one drugs include opiates, opium, hallucinogenic substances such as salts, cannabis, psilocybin, heroine, valium, or cocaine.
Examples of Schedule five drugs typically include the amount of drugs that are in possession, 200 milligrams of codeine per 100 milliliters or per 100 grams.
If you are found guilty of transporting designated controlled substances, you could face some serious penalties.
It is important to note that possession and transportation of a methamphetamine is under a different statute.
What is the Punishment?
Transporting a controlled substance is punishable by imprisonment from three to five years. If probation is granted a court may require someone to complete a drug rehabilitation program or counseling. Additionally, if this is not your first conviction of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell the penalty can include more jail time or a higher fine.
The sentence can vary, and it is important to have a knowledgeable attorney who can advocate for the lowest sentence possible for you. It is possible to get a sentence reduced, but not without competent legal counsel.
Even as a Defendant, you still have Rights! Make sure yours were not violated!
Even as an individual facing criminal charges, you have rights, and it is important to know those rights and make sure that they were not violated in any way when you were arrested or charged. Without extensive knowledge of your rights when it comes to police searches, Miranda rights, and your rights when it comes to arrest, it is extremely difficult to get a dismissal or reduction. Do not try to fight these charges on your own—Weber Law is ready to help you today.
