Canadian truck driver charged with international drug smuggling

In the winter of 2008, a Canadian truck driver was charged with international drug smuggling when authorities discovered in excess of (110,000) doses of MDMA, (ecstasy) as well as a large quantity of marijuana hidden in the tractor trailer’s interior walls.

Craig Kadish represented the trucker in a case that made headlines in both countries. Mr. Kadish secured the Canadian citizen’s release after six tense weeks in custody, after which he was able to return home to Canada. Although the client faced years of mandatory prison time for importation of controlled substances, Mr. Kadish was able to resolve the case without any additional incarceration.
