Immigration Drug Charges

Phoenix, Arizona Criminal Defense Attorney

Before entering a plea of "guilty" on a drug charge, immigrants should know that a drug conviction is a deportable offense. Even if a guilty plea is part of a plea bargain that reduces the charges against a defendant, he or she can still be deported - even if probation or participation in a diversion program is part of the deal. As a result, even though the criminal court system may not view an adult deferred prosecution program plea as a criminal conviction, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services does. As a consequence, a guilty plea or conviction in a drug-related case will result in deportation or disqualification hearings. At Blumberg & Associates, we work with immigrants and immigration attorneys to defend non-citizen visa holders charge in drug crime cases. We understand the unique challenges and difficulties facing immigrants and are prepared to help them fight both the criminal charges against them and deportation.

If you've been charged with a drug crime or are an immigration lawyer with a client facing drug charges, contact criminal defense attorneys at Blumberg & Associates today to discuss your case.

Before You Enter a Plea of Guilty

There are several issues that must be considered when a non-citizen immigrant is arrested on drug charges. In drug possession cases, how the drugs were found, where they were found, and the actions of arresting officers are important. Were the drugs found in an apartment owned by the defendant? In a car he or she was riding in? Were they brought there by a friend or relative? When the police find drugs, they don't always take the time to find out who their owner actually is. As a result, immigrants can find themselves charged with drug possession due to being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The same set of concerns applies to allegations of narcotics trafficking and smuggling. Did a relative use the defendant's house or car to store and smuggle drugs in? While these defenses may not acquit the accused in all cases, in some they may be enough to convince the court to drop charges.
