If someone that you love has been falsely accused and arrested on the charge of possessing illegal drugs, you should not fight those charges alone. In addition to moral support from family and friends, you need an outstanding lawyer who will speak on your behalf. They are professionally trained to keep innocent people out of jail. It is more common than you may think that the wrong person is arrested and faces criminal charges.
Being arrested may leave you feeling powerless. If you are currently on probation, the fear that it may be revoked is a very real possibility. Perhaps you have been arrested, just when your probation time is nearing an end; you may suspect that an enemy or rival has planted controlled substances on you, without your permission or knowledge.
If caught with controlled substances in your possession, the penalties maybe strict, including heavy fines, mandatory drug rehab programs and/or time spent in prison. A misdemeanor may seem like a minor charge in comparison, but there are consequences that you may not have considered, such as losing the privilege to drive or the ability to find and keep steady and stable work.
If you have been falsely accused of drug possession, these charges can only be fought in a court of law with a professional attorney at your side, who has proven that they can be an effective defense against these types’ charges.
You cannot successfully win this type of court case alone; you need an experienced and knowledgeable criminal attorney as an advocator and speaking on your behalf. A common defense lawyer may not ask the right questions, or dig as deep as necessary to prove your innocence. For instance, they may not pressure the opposing attorney to prove that drugs found in a vehicle belonged to you, and not the other passengers that were present in the vehicle.
Guilt must be proven to convict, that is true, but if you are dealing with corruption or misconduct by law enforcement, your only chance of proving you are innocent is with a criminal defense lawyer, who will be aggressive to fight for your innocent.
It is important that you speak the truth to your lawyer.
Once they know your side and examine all the evidence, they will look very closely to see if any evidence was obtained illegally. This is referred to as “suppressing evidence”, and this process is a powerful and effective tool that your criminal lawyer will use as part of your defense. Once evidence has been suppressed, it cannot be used in the case against you. In many false drug cases, because of suppressed evidence, charges are eventually dropped.
This process is easier said than done , which is why you will more than likely face jail time for something you did not do, if you do not have a lawyer that will effectively and aggressively view every piece of evidence from every angle, to get it suppressed, and to avoid having you spend time behind bars.
