John Teakell specializes in several areas under the purview of smuggling including:

Alien Smuggling

Alien smuggling involves the illegal transportation of individuals across borders with the intent to evade immigration laws. This offense typically involves organized criminal networks and can lead to severe legal consequences.

Illegal Transportation

Illegal transportation refers to the act of transporting individuals within the country without proper authorization or documentation. It can involve facilitating the movement of undocumented immigrants through various means, such as vehicles, boats, or other modes of transportation.

Marriage Fraud

Marriage fraud occurs when an individual enters into a fraudulent marriage with a U.S. citizen or permanent resident solely to obtain immigration benefits. This offense undermines the integrity of the immigration system and can result in criminal charges and severe penalties.

Harboring Aliens

Harboring aliens involves knowingly sheltering, concealing, or providing support to individuals who are in the country without legal authorization. This offense encompasses actions that assist undocumented immigrants in evading detection or removal by authorities.

Understanding the Penalties: Consequences of Conviction

Convictions related to alien smuggling, illegal transportation, marriage fraud, or harboring aliens can have life-altering consequences. The penalties vary depending on the specific offense and factors such as prior criminal history, the number of individuals involved, and the extent of the illegal activity. Potential consequences may include:

  • Lengthy prison sentences ranging from several years to decades.
  • Substantial fines and restitution payments.
  • Forfeiture of assets and property linked to criminal activity.
  • Permanent criminal record affecting employment, housing, and other aspects of life.
  • Deportation or removal proceedings for non-U.S. citizens, leading to separation from loved ones and future immigration challenges.
