The state always has the burden to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. No matter if you are innocent or guilty, when the prosecution does not have sufficient evidence to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, you cannot be convicted of a drug crime. Such drug crimes could include:
If the police seized evidence from your car or home without a required and sufficient warrant, suppression of the seized evidence could be enacted on your behalf with the help of proper representation. If your vehicle was stopped without sufficient cause, the suppression of any evidence found in your vehicle could also be pursued in a court of law with the proper defense.
- Marijuana/Cocaine/Meth/All drugs
- Controlled Substances
Recently, in the news, 12 suspected Norteño gang members were charged in four murders, while dozens of other suspects were also charged with robbery, drug possession and gang conspiracy. It would have been in the best interest of those suspects to have secured experienced legal counsel in that scenario, familiar with drug and narcotics charges. It is likely that some of the suspects could have been wrongfully accused of these crimes.
You may have a very strong defense if you made a confession before the police properly read you your Miranda rights, or were subjected to threats or coercion. If you are facing drug related charges call the Law Offices of Sara D. Bratsch to seek council today.
