Penalties for Drug Transportation

Drug transportation is a felony in the state of Virginia. The penalties for transportation will depend mainly on the type of substances, such as whether or not it was a Schedule I, II, III, or other drug classification. If the evidence finds that the intention was to bring drugs into the state with the intention of selling it, not only can one face state penalties but federal as well.

These are the penalties for drug transportation of controlled substances:

First offense:

  • 5 to 40 years’ incarceration, at least 3 years mandatory
  • Fine of no more than $1, 000, 000

Second offense:

  • Minimum of 10 years’ incarceration, and must be served consecutively with any additional sentences

Also, as part of sentencing, the judge may also order drug rehabilitation or participate in counseling. If one has a previous record of drug crime convictions, the penalties may be enhanced. If you are facing charges, there is no time to waste. When you retain our attorney, Daniel J. Miller, you have a seasoned ally on your side.
