Drug charges are serious and can be based on different types of alleged criminal conduct. The Law Office of Sam Byrd, located in Hamilton, Tennessee, has represented individuals facing serious drug crimes such as drug distribution, drug possession and drug trafficking.
Each drug crime listed in the preceding paragraph involves different elements that prosecutors must prove before a person may be found guilty of their alleged crimes. It is up to prosecutors to demonstrate that defendants met all of the requirements of the charges beyond a reasonable doubt before they can be convicted. If a prosecutor fails in this regard, then a defendant may have an opportunity to gain their freedom and overcome the burden of criminal charges hanging over them.
There are steps that individuals facing drug charges can take to help their cases and move them toward dismissals or acquittals. They can develop proactive criminal defense strategies that introduce supportive evidence and advocate for the defendants' sides of their stories. They can investigate and put forth defenses that explain why certain conduct they engaged in was not criminal or why certain proof offered by prosecutors should not be considered against them.
The varying types of drug charges that Tennessee residents may confront coupled with the diverse spectrum of facts that may support prosecutors' claims of criminal conduct can make different drug charge cases take diverging paths. At the Law Office of Same Byrd, clients facing drug charges are recognized as individuals with unique legal dilemmas. Attorney Byrd and his committed staff work with their clients to provide unparalleled legal services in the area of criminal defense.
