Challenging Evidence in Michigan Drug Crime Cases

In Michigan drug crime cases, every piece of evidence that is transferred or moved must be documented and stored with careful attention to procedural details. An experienced criminal defense attorney can find missing links in the chain of custody, or other procedural errors, which could help you achieve a case dismissal. Contact Grabel & Associates for aggressive criminal defense from a reputable Michigan law firm. Our drug crime defense team understands what it takes to win in complex cases, and will help you overcome the accusations you are facing.

Chain of Custody in Michigan Criminal Cases

When evidence is taken in a drug crime case, admissibility is often determined by looking at the chain of custody. If you have been arrested for drug use based on a blood or urine chemical test, every step that the sample took from the initial test to transport to analysis must be documented. Any inconsistencies or omissions on the record for that evidence could give you an opportunity to have your Michigan drug crime charge dismissed or dropped.

If a physician, police officer, or drug enforcement team temporarily loses a piece of evidence, or allows a third party to handle it, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can expose chain of custody errors and use mistakes to earn you a better result. Grabel & Associates has experience working with clients in drug possession, use, manufacture, and distribution cases and we know how to attack chain of custody in Michigan cases.

Michigan Chain of Custody in Drug Crime Trial

When a prosecutor seeks to introduce a piece of evidence at trial, it may require a proper chain of custody testimony. The chain of custody should show what the evidence is, include testimony of every person who handled the evidence, and have accurate documentation of every transfer that took place. Missing chain of custody links can lead to allegations of evidence tampering or rights violations, which could in turn help you beat the charges you are facing. Every chain of custody link demonstrates that evidence was not tampered with, substituted, or changed in any way, and missing links can give skilled drug crime defense lawyers an opportunity to obtain excellent case outcomes for clients in even the most difficult criminal cases.
