Trafficking and Importing

Trafficking and Importing

All drug crimes are serious, but the justice system views the sale and distribution of drugs as particularly egregious. A strong, strategic defence is crucial to ensure all aspects of the Crown's case against you are scrutinized and that you receive a fair hearing in court.

Cynthia Fromstein Barristers, a Toronto criminal defence firm, features experienced lawyers with the knowledge and skill to defend you. We know how to build a tactical defence to your drug trafficking and importation charges and provide you with the advocacy you need at every stage of the process.

Defining Trafficking And Importing

Trafficking and importing are distinct crimes. Trafficking is the transportation of a controlled substance. This can include the simple passing of a controlled substance from one person to another, the administration of a controlled substance or a sale. Often, an individual charged with trafficking is someone who acts as a carrier for dealers.

Importing of drugs involves the bringing of drugs into Canada from another jurisdiction. In order to convict, the Crown must prove that the accused brought drugs into Canada and the accused knew that he or she was doing so. An individual who caused drugs to be imported into the country can also be convicted of this offence.
