Drug Trafficking in Phoenix
As a border state, Arizona has been designated by the U. S. Justice Department
as a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), described as a "major
arrival zone" for huge quantities of illegal drugs brought into the
U. S. from Mexico. As such, Phoenix and other Arizona areas are heavily
targeted by state and federal law enforcement agencies with the mission
of reducing illegal trafficking in the area. According to the Justice
Department, 42 percent of all marijuana seizures that took place along
the Arizona-Mexico border in 2009 occurred in the HIDTA. Heroin and cocaine
seizures have also increased in the HIDTA due to the concentration of
law enforcement efforts. Many of these seizures have resulted in drug
trafficking charges being filed in Arizona.
If you are convicted of drug trafficking, you may be at risk for incarceration,
heavy fines, probation, and other court-ordered actions. Convictions of
this crime also pose significant legal problems for those who are not
citizens of the United States. You should immediately
contact Mr. Davidson's firm. As a Phoenix drug trafficking lawyer, he provides comprehensive legal help.
