Common Drug Crime Case Mistakes
There are many mistakes that can be made by alleged drug crime offenders, which could lead to wrongful conviction or excessively harsh penalties. Early on in a criminal investigation, police will be working to get the evidence they need to convict you, and our attorneys understand exactly what they will be looking for. If you are asked to consent to a search of your person, home, or vehicle, it is never a good idea. If you consent to a search, you will not be able to challenge the legality of evidence. Working with our attorneys as early on in your case as possible will help you ensure you don’t give the police information that will be used against you.
It is also a mistake to speak to police before speaking with an attorney. While you may think you can clear your name by making statements, police questioning is designed to get you to say what they need to hear. Don’t make any statements without an attorney present, so that you can continue to fight for a beneficial case outcome.
Additionally, it is always a mistake to admit to a crime, even if police offer a deal or tell you they have evidence against you. Contact a lawyer if you are under investigation and make sure your rights are protected.
Police Mistakes in Drug Crime Cases
While errors you make in a criminal case can lead to conviction, police errors can result in an improved case outcome. If police fail to read you your rights before asking questions, anything you say is inadmissible in court. If police read you your rights, it is critical to speak with a lawyer before making any statements.
Sometimes, police continue to question a suspect after he or she has requested to have an attorney present. If police don’t respect your request, you may be able to keep any statements made from being used against you.
Searching a person or a person’s home without a warrant or probable cause is also a mistake that can be made in drug crime cases. If you do not consent to a search and police do not have a warrant or probable cause, anything they find will be inadmissible in court.
Another mistake that can be made is failing to conduct a proper investigation. Police must follow leads that could prove your innocence as well as leads that could produce evidence against you. Failure to properly investigate your side of the story could lead to a case dismissal or court victory.
