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 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.

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 as soon as you have been arrested.
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.
