A conviction on drug charges can derail a Florida resident’s life plans and throw into question the possibilities for their future. Whether they are arrested and then convicted on possession charges, manufacturing charges, distribution charges or others, there is little a person can do after prosecutors have proven their cases and successfully secured verdicts in their favor. However, it is possible to defend oneself against drug charges, and in some cases, criminal defendants can overcome their charges by examining deficiencies and problems in their prosecutors’ cases.
For example, many drug cases are built on the seizure of allegedly illegal substances from those who are then arrested. But, the law enforcement officials who execute those seizures are mandated to follow certain procedural rules to ensure that the arrested parties’ rights are protected. Whether a person is subjected to a search and seizure process due to a traffic stop, search warrant or other means, it is imperative that law enforcement officials abide by the rules for any future convictions based on the evidence they collect to hold up in court.
Many who face drug charges find it helpful to utilize the services of criminal defense attorneys when taking on their pending charges. Not only can criminal defense lawyers help their drug case clients prepare for trial, but also help them review the facts and circumstances that led to their arrests to ensure their clients were not illegally searched or arrested based on deficient law enforcement efforts.
