You are guilty of Transportation of Drugs if you drive on a New Hampshire public way while knowingly having in your possession or in any part of the vehicle a controlled drug. Transportation of Drugs is a Misdemeanor and carries a mandatory 60 day loss of license. Further, Transportation of a Controlled Drug qualifies as a “major” motor vehicle conviction for Habitual Offender purposes and carries six demerit points towards license loss.
Transportation of Drug cases almost always involve “suppression issues.” Did the police violate your right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures? We take a critical look at the evidence with an eye towards the following: Why did the police pull you over in the first place? How did the police officer get into your car? Did you actually give consent to search the car? Did the police officer exceed the scope of a proper motor vehicle stop when he asked for consent to search? Can the State actually prove that the substance is a controlled drug?
