Facing Drug Charges in Texas? What Should You Do Now?
It is vital that you do NOT speak with law enforcement about your case until you can first speak with a lawyer. Your statements can and will be used against you in court. When law enforcement is preparing to charge or arrest an individual with a drug crime, there are many procedural safeguards they must follow so that the civil liberties of the accused can be protected. It is possible to completely defeat a drug charge if you can prove that law enforcement acted in violation of these procedural safeguards, whether you are guilty or not.
Unlawful Search and Seizure
If the arresting officers in your case violated the Fourth Amendment (and thus, your civil liberties) by unlawfully searching you or your property, or by unlawfully seizing the alleged contraband, then some evidence may be considered excludable. It is possible to completely exclude all evidence in your case, including any drugs or paraphernalia found in your possession. Often, search and seizure procedural violations can result in the total dismissal of your charge. Throughout our investigations we scour every resource possible to answer important questions, such as:
- Was your property searched without a warrant?
- If there was a search warrant, was it valid?
- If your vehicle was searched following a traffic stop, was the traffic stop lawful?
- Was your vehicle searched with just reason?
- Did the authorities go through the proper procedures to search and/or seize your property?
