Have you been charged with possession with intent to sell, manufacture, or distribute? If so, you need to speak with an experienced drug crimes defense attorney right away. Drug possession with intent to sell, manufacture, or distribute is a much more serious offense than simple possession charges and carries much heavier penalties.
The best way to protect yourself after an arrest is by speaking with a highly trained criminal defense lawyer. A skilled Los Angeles drug crime attorney will know how to build and create innovative and effective defense strategies, as well as how to use those defense strategies to your advantage in court.
In order to conduct an arrest, the police must have evidence that proves your intent to sell, manufacture or distribute the drugs. There are a number of things police officers typically look for when investigating these types of cases, such as:
Without sufficient evidence, the police will not have grounds to file charges. Unfortunately, in desperation to collect the evidence needed to make an arrest, sometimes police officers and investigators break the law by conducting an unlawful search and seizure. The police cannot search you or your property without just cause or a valid search warrant.
If you think the police violated federal search and seizure law, you should speak with an attorney at our office who can look into the matter to determine if your constitutional rights were violated. If we discover the police conducted an unlawful search and seizure, we will move to have the evidence thrown out of court. Without sufficient evidence, it will be very difficult for the prosecution to pursue their case. In fact, it might be a situation where the charges would be dropped completely.
