In our last post, we discussed some of the penalties of federal drug trafficking charges. After reading that post, you probably see why having a defense strategy is so important. The fact of the matter is that there isn’t any such thing as a one-size-fits-all defense when it comes to federal drug trafficking charges. Instead, each case has to be evaluated and defense options have to be laid out. We can help you to learn about the options you have available in your case.
We know that we need to look at every possible defense strategy. Some people might have read the story about the man who was facing federal drug trafficking charges but was exonerated on all charges because the reason he was stopped by officers was illegal. In that case, the man was stopped for jaywalking, but the man’s actions didn’t meet the legal requirements for jaywalking. Because of that, the search of the man that found more than 30 bags of marijuana and a gun was found to be illegal.
That case shows that when you are exploring options for a federal drug charge, the exploration has to start from the very beginning of the case. In that man’s case, the initial reason for officers to contact the man came into question.
We can help you investigate the entire case from the start up until the current point to determine if laws were followed, policies upheld and procedures complied with. If there is any error on the part of the law enforcement officers, we can help you learn if those errors can impact your case.
