Drug Crimes Overview
Marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, oxycodone, LSD, PCP, psilocin, prescription fraud. Whether you have been charged with possessing under an ounce of marijuana, forging a prescription or delivering more than 20 pounds of cocaine, you need a criminal law expert who stays current on the latest laws and trends regarding drug offenses. Often, there are many defenses available in a drug possession case. These may include lack of actual possession or knowledge.
- Where were the drugs found?
- If they were in a car, who did the car belong to?
- If they were in a bag or purse, who owned the bag or purse?
- Were they placed there by someone else?
- How can the government prove they belong to you?
- If the police are searching for drugs (a car, your clothing, your home), do they have a legal right to search?
- Did the officer have a warrant? Did the officer have consent? Did the officer have probable cause?
You need an experienced attorney who has answers to these questions.
If the search was conducted under the authority of a warrant issued by a judge, you need an attorney who has years of experience drafting, reviewing, editing, teaching about and attacking that warrant’s validity. A defective warrant will often lead to evidence being suppressed and charges being reduced or dismissed.
