Factors in a traffic stop impact a drug case based on the stop

There are many outcomes of traffic stops that most people don't ever consider. One of these is that there will be an arrest at the stop because of the presence of drugs or drug paraphernalia. We recently discussed some of the various drug charges that exist. When you are charged with any of these after a traffic stop, you need to think about what happened step by step so you can determine how you are going to proceed with your defense.

Drug charge types vary greatly

Many people think that drug charges only have to do with people who are selling the drugs. This is only one of the possible charges that a person can face in relation to drugs. It is imperative for all people who are facing any types of drug charges understand what the charges entail.

Know your options when you are facing drug charges of any kind

With the wishy-washy economy, some people are turning to anything possible to make money. For some people, this means turning to methods that aren't legal. When you need to sell drugs to make ends meet, you are rolling the dice and could end up facing serious legal charges.

We work on your options for a defense against drug charges

In our recent blog post, we discussed how you might be able to enter into a plea agreement to resolve a drug case. This is only one of the options that you have so you should make sure that you are following through with the option that you are most comfortable with.

Consider the possibility of a plea deal to resolve your case

The resolution of a criminal case can occur in many different manners. The most common way that these cases are resolved is through a plea bargain. These deals between the prosecution and the defense give each side a bit of power to determine how the case is handled. If you are a defendant in a criminal case, make sure that you consider the pros and cons of a plea deal before you agree to one.

Know the basics of drug charges before your criminal trial

In our recent blog post, we discussed controlled substances and how they are classified. That is only one of the components of a criminal trial regarding drugs. Once the drug classification is determined, the amount of the drug that you were said to have possessed and other factors of the case come into the picture. All of those factors must be considered when you are combating criminal drug charges.

Know how controlled substances are classified

Controlled substances are classified according to schedules. Each of these schedules has specific points that play a part in the classification. A person who is facing drug charges should know what schedule the drug he or she is charged with having is in so that he or she can know how to combat the charges.
