Drug Offenses

drug_offenses_thumbIllegal drugs are related to crime in multiple ways. It is a crime to use, possess, manufacture, or distribute drugs classified as having a potential for abuse such as:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Amphetamines
  • Ecstasy

Facing criminal charges involving any type of drug-related offense is very serious. Some drug crimes may result in many years of mandatory imprisonment. Furthermore, certain drugs are considered to be more dangerous than others and will be punished more harshly. Even seemingly minor offenses can lead to jail time and license suspension.

A primary consideration in defending any drug case is whether the drugs that were found by police were found legally. You should NEVER, under any circumstances, consent to have an officer search you, your vehicle or your home! An officer needs legal justification to conduct these types of searches and there are specific guidelines he or she must follow. Often, police do not follow these guidelines correctly and any evidence found can be suppressed, even if you did consent. However, this does not happen automatically. Aggressive legal work aimed at suppressing evidence that was illegally found is essential, and Corales & Woody, LLC has the experience and determination to go after the evidence and keep it out. Once evidence is suppressed, prosecutors often have no choice but to dismiss the case against you.

If a judge should decide that the evidence against you was obtained legally, there are a variety of defenses, some highly technical, that can be used to successfully defend your case. Only an experienced and knowledgeable attorney will be able to craft the best defense for your particular case and maximize the probability of success.

In a courtroom the prosecution will most likely come after you with tenacity to try and put you behind bars. Do not take a risk with your future. We can provide you with the aggressive defense you need to protect yourself.
