Marijuana & Controlled Substance Offenses
Even if the police found drugs on you, it does not mean their case is airtight. There are hosts of procedures and protections that must be afforded to anyone arrested for a drug crime. If the police stop you illegally, conduct an improper search of your vehicle, act under an invalid search warrant or arrest without probable cause, your case may be dismissed. The point of hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney is so that they can spot these issues and challenge them in court.
Throughout north Texas, people come to us after they have been arrested and charged with a drug crime such as:
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug distribution or trafficking
- Manufacturing of a controlled substance
Most successful defenses related to a drug crime involve early investigation and discovery of all the facts of a case. One of the real questions that needs to be answered early on is whether the police had a valid reason to stop and search you in the first place.
If the state has accused you off committing a drug crime, you should contact the law firm of James Lee Bright for a free initial consultation.
