When accused of drug crimes, the details matter

There are all sorts of important details, big and little, in drug crime accusations.

One is the type of substances the alleged drug crime involved. Drug crime allegations can involve many different types of substances, including illegal drugs (like cocaine, meth or marijuana), prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Another is the exact illegal drug activity alleged to have been committed. There are several different types of illegal drug activity. Some examples are: drug possession, drug trafficking, drug manufacturing and drug distribution.

Other examples of details that can be important ones in drug crime allegations include where the crime is alleged to have been committed and what quantities of drugs the alleged crime involved.

The exact details of the drug crime allegations leveled against a person can be very impactful, as they can affect what sorts of charges and potential penalties a person could end up facing in relation to the allegations. 

Another thing that can be very impactful when it comes to drug crime allegations is how they came about. What exact things police did to obtain the evidence which led to the allegations can affect what defense options a defendant has. For example, if police violated constitutional rules regarding searches and seizures when they obtained a piece of evidence that led to a person facing drug crime charges, the person may be able to request that the evidence be barred from the proceedings in their case.

It is very important for a person who is accused of drug crimes to understand what their legal position is and what their options are given the specifics of the allegations against them, the specifics of the evidence police have against them and the other details of their case, as this can be essential in making informed decisions in criminal proceedings regarding the allegations. Our Chattanooga law firm understands the various ways that the different little details in a drug crime case can impact a person's legal position and options, and we can help individuals who have been accused of drug crimes in building a defense strategy fitted to their specific situation.
