Chris has successfully handled many drug cases including trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in heroin and fentanyl, trafficking in ecstasy, methamphetamines or possession for the purpose (PPT) of any drug and simple possession of any drug.
The Crown will initially determine whether it can be proven that the amount of drugs in question is likely to result in a conviction for the purpose of trafficking rather than simple possession. Ultimately that is for a Court to decide if an agreement with the Crown cannot be reached before a trial. This determination can have huge consequences not only regarding conviction but to the type of sentence as well.
There are severe penalties possible for all drug charges, including a prohibition to travel to the United States, should you be convicted of any drug offence. In many cases a criminal record is possible and if convicted of the more serious cases such as trafficking then a jail sentence can be imposed .
