Rhode Island Drug Defense Lawyer
Defenses to Drug Offenses
The best defense to a drug possession or drug sale charge, whether it be marijuana, cocaine, prescription pills, or any other illegal narcardic, is to challenge how the evidence was obtained by law enforcement. The government builds its possession, sale and trafficking cases based on evidence obtained through searches and seizures. Law enforcement must comply with the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution, Article I, Section 6 of the Rhode Island Constitution and well-established search and seizure laws in order to legally obtain evidence.
Evidence obtained by an illegal search and seizure, which is found to have violated an individual's rights is inadmissible and will be suppressed resulting in a dismissal of the case. In other words, a win.
There are many ways in which law enforcement may violate a persons rights. One of the most common examples is obtaining an involuntary consent to search a person's home or automobile. Do not forget the following Constitutional rights: you have the right not to consent to a search of your property or person and the right to insist that the police get a warrant before searching you, your home or automobile. If the police threaten you in any way to get your consent, for example, threatening to take your child away or having you deported, the consent is not voluntary and therefore the search is illegal.
