Penalties for Smuggling Aliens Across the Border
If you have been accused of smuggling illegal immigrants across the border,
you will be prosecuted in federal court. Human trafficking charges carry
stiff penalties, including lengthy prison terms and costly fines, so it
is crucial that you discuss your case with a Phoenix criminal defense
lawyer at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. as soon as you have been arrested.
There are enhanced penalties based on certain circumstances, such as:
- The number of people who were brought into the U.S.
- The manner in which the people were brought into the U.S.
- Exposing illegal aliens to the threat of injury or death
- Whether the person being smuggled is a convicted felon
Generally, a federal conviction for alien smuggling will result in a 10-year
prison sentence. However, your prison sentence could be multiplied by
the number of illegal aliens you were accused of smuggling across the
border. If you exposed others to the risk of serious bodily injury or
death, the length of your prison sentence could also be increased to 20 years.
