One of the primary questions to be asked in a misdemeanor or felony drug case is whether or not the initial search of the person, vehicle, residence, or building was a legal search. Did you know that many cases are dismissed on technicalities? If the search is found to be illegal, the “fruits of the search,” or the evidence against you, is often deemed inadmissible, in which case the charges against you will be dismissed.
Whether you were advised of all your rights, the amount of the substance found, the subsequent handling of the substance, and whether others were present at the time are also important questions to be investigated. As you can see, fighting a criminal case can be very complicated. Sentences for drug charges have become increasingly severe, which is why picking a qualified attorney is so important.
