There is an underlying misconception that if an individual is accused of a drug crime, he or she must have either been found in possession of a controlled substance or were caught attempting to sell a narcotic. Needless to say, this is a wrong perspective to have on drug crimes, as the situation has a large grey area when it comes to criminal accusations and defense options. Thus, those accused of a drug crime in Mississippi should note their right and legal options when it comes to asserting a strong defense.
When an individual is charged with a drug crime, he or she is likely to feel helpless against the growing case the state has against them. However, it is important to note that, just because evidence has been collected against you, it doesn't mean that all of it will stick in your case. At Cynthia A. Stewart, P.A., our experienced legal team understands that not all evidence is lawfully collected; thereby creating the opportunity to suppress evidence and asserting an aggressive criminal defense.
No matter the severity of the crime, our law firm has the experience and skills to handle your matter. With years of experience, we are well versed in felony and misdemeanor drug crimes as well as federal and state drug charges. We note the importance of explaining the matter in full detail to our clients, ensuring they understand the potential consequences that could befall them. We also provide realistic defense approaches, helping to ensure the goals and best interest of our clients are met.
One thing is clear to us, and that is that law enforcement does not always comply with the set standards they are required to follow when conducting a search a seizure. If we determine our client's Fourth Amendment rights have been violated, we will use this information to suppress evidence. Ultimately, this could result in reduced or even dismissed charges.
