A San Antonio drug arrest attorney seeks a case dismissal for you
Drug crime charges carry a variety of penalties, the severity of which depends on the type of crime in question. While courts generally consider possession charges to be misdemeanors, in which case you might want to enlist the services of a San Antonio marijuana possession attorney, other types of drug crimes, including trafficking, manufacturing and distributing, are much more serious. There may also be different ramifications if you’re a juvenile offender. If convicted of these crimes you may face imprisonment, sizeable fines and probation.
As your San Antonio criminal attorney, Mr. Churak analyzes the details surrounding your case to compile a solid defense. He specifically searches for the presence of issues such as:
- Illegal searches and seizures. Whenever police officers search your property, they must have either a valid warrant or your permission to do so. If they enter your property or take your possessions without either of these, any evidence collected cannot be used against you in court — even if it incriminates you. Be warned: many officers attempt to bully suspects into allowing them to search their property. When officers want permission to search yours, politely decline consent to the search and contact an attorney immediately.
- Invalid warrants. There are a variety of steps officers must follow to obtain a valid warrant. All warrants must come from the proper authorities and have all of the necessary notarization before any searches can take place. Do not simply assume that officers who want to search your property have a valid warrant. Never let them in unless you see the warrant for yourself.
When these issues are present in your case, Mr. Churak seeks an immediate dismissal, thus clearing your name. If a dismissal is not possible, he pursues an aggressive defense strategy to help you get the best results possible.
