Importing is the most serious offence. Again it varies by type of drug and amount imported. Bringing in a substantial amount of cocaine is punishable by long sentences in the penitentiary, while bringing in small amounts of a softer drug is much less serious.
At Derstine Penman our lawyers are very experienced at defending drug charges. Often such defence involves challenging the search warrants, which are often the cornerstone of the Crown’s case. Successful challenge to such searches has seen a number of our clients walk free even in cases involving very serious drug charges.
