The type of drug charge you are facing has an impact on the way you handle your defense. More serious drug crimes might contain more elements that you need to address.
The fact is that no matter how minor or serious the charges are, you need to work hard on your defense. We are here to help you learn about the ways you can do that.
The possibilities for your defense depend on the circumstances of the case. For example, if you and a friend were in a car together and there were drugs found tucked into the middle of the back seat, you might be able to use the fact that you didn't know about the drugs. This wouldn't be possible if the drugs were found in your pocket or purse.
While there are some fairly common defenses to drug charges, you must remember that only the ones that pertain to the evidence in your case are appropriate for your defense. We don't want you to rely on a cookie-cutter defense and think that you will get the same result as someone else.
When you are considering your defense, you need to set your goal. If you admit that you did the crime in question, your focus might shift from being found not guilty to minimizing the effects of a conviction. If you vehemently deny your involvement in the drug crime, your objective for the defense could be introducing doubt into the mind of the judge or jurors who hear your case.
We take all drug cases seriously and work hard to find customized defense options for the case. Once we determine the options, we can start building the defense.
