Smuggling people across the U.S.-Mexico border is a serious federal crime. If you are convicted of human trafficking, you face a very real possibility of federal prison time. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you contact a Phoenix criminal defense attorney at Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. if you have been charged with human trafficking, harboring illegal immigrants, alien smuggling, or another immigration crime. You will need a strong and effective defense effort.

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.
