Drug Crimes are taken very seriously in North Carolina, and if the charges against you are not properly managed, you could spend a lot of time in jail. The strength of the government’s case against you will rely less on the physical evidence involved, and more on the decisions of the police and investigators involved. Whether or not police had the right to stop and search your car, enter your home, or seize property will determine what evidence is allowed at trial, and whether or not the charges against you should be dropped. Drug charges against you can be dismissed or reduced if the officer did not have a valid reason to stop you, the officer did not have a valid reason to search you, your home, or your vehicle, your consent to search was not voluntary, or the officer cannot prove that you were in possession of drugs. Drug crimes include distribution, possession, possession of paraphernalia, manufacturing, sales, trafficking, and possession with intent to distribute.
At Street and Shook, we interview witnesses, review police videotape footage, and all of the other evidence against you. We are prepared to fight the charges against you by identifying police misconduct, and other constitutional errors that may have been made before or during your arrest.
