International crimes generally fall into two categories: criminal offenses against the world community, including acts of terrorism or war that threaten world order and security, crimes against humanity, and genocide; or transnational criminal acts, including drug trafficking, human trafficking, money laundering, financial crimes, and willful damage to the environment. Drug trafficking is the most common international crime. The DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) enforces laws pertaining to drug crimes. The penalties for a drug trafficking conviction will depend upon the drug being trafficked, the quantity, and the number of prior convictions, if any. If you or someone you know is involved in an international crime, drug trafficking, or human trafficking investigation, it is crucial that you consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who has experience with these crimes.

International Extradition

International extradition is the formal process by which an individual is delivered from a country where he or she is located to the requesting country in order to face prosecution or serve a sentence. The parties involved in an extradition are the two countries and the individual who is the subject of the proceedings. Most countries deny extradition requests if, in the government’s opinion, the suspect is sought for a political crime. Many countries, such as Mexico, Canada and most European nations, will not allow extradition if the death penalty may be imposed on the suspect, unless they are assured that the death sentence will not subsequently be passed or carried out.

If you or someone you know is facing extradition, you will need the advice and counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney. Without early and timely representation, the results of your case will surely vary.
