Possible Defenses to Drug Charges in Texas
Where should your defense begin? Find out by calling (817) 435-4970 and talking to our Fort Worth drug crimes lawyers. Every case is unique due to all the varying circumstances surrounding an arrest and investigations. However, it may be useful to understand the basic elements of a drug crime defense case and what is typically considered in a defense strategy.
Aspects of a drug crime defense case we may want to discuss with you:
- Unlawful search and seizure: The police cannot simply make arrests, pull vehicles over, or take suspect property without due cause and valid reason. In many drug crime cases, it can be revealed that the police conducted an unlawful search and seizure. If proven, any evidence gathered due to the unlawful actions could be dismissed.
- Prescription drugs: Some people are wrongfully arrested and charged by police for possessing drugs for which they have a prescription. Providing a copy of the prescription may not be enough to have the charges dismissed, though. Talk to our Fort Worth criminal defense lawyers to find out the appropriate way to handle such a critical misunderstanding.
- Mistaken identity: Illegal drugs found within a public area of a private property can be tricky to pinpoint. Who actually owns the illicit substances? Police can feasibly arrest the wrong person on a hunch or due to false allegations. We will do whatever we can to make it clear that any evidence collected in a public space, like a living room or in the back of your vehicle, did not belong to you.
