Did They Have The Right To Search My Property?
Drug crimes can involve possession, manufacturing, cultivation, distribution or trafficking of a controlled substance. The consequences of these charges can vary based on the amount of drugs found in your possession, the number of offenses you have faced in the past and whether or not there is evidence of intent to sell.
Law enforcement must follow strict protocols in collecting any evidence against you. Unfortunately, many people's rights are violated without them knowing it. Before a search can be conducted, there must be probable cause or reasonable suspicion of a criminal offense taking place. In many cases, a warrant must be issued to facilitate a property search, but exemptions apply to law enforcement in specific instances, such as when a search is related to an arrest, when a search is conducted with consent or when items are in plain view.
The rules that govern drug charges and the evidence brought against the accused are complicated. Any criminal charge brought against you can dramatically impact your life, so make sure to work with a knowledgeable lawyer at our firm to get the personalized attention and strategic defense your case demands.
