Providing Solid Legal Defense for Drug Crimes

The effects of a drug crime conviction can be far-reaching. In addition to costly fines, you may be facing significant time in prison, depending on the specifics of your charges. Mandatory minimum sentencing applies to most drug crime convictions, so if you are convicted, you could be facing a prison sentence for a predetermined amount of time.

If you have been charged with a drug crime - including drug possession, trafficking, or distribution - it is in your best interests to take immediate legal action. The Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller provides experienced and effective criminal defense of drug charges to clients throughout southeastern Virginia.

What Are the Possible Defenses to Drug Charges?

For the most part, the penalties for drug crimes, and possession, in particular, are similar across the board. To form a defense, a Virginia Beach drug crime attorney reviews the facts and witness testimony, and evidence. A lawyer may also evaluate whether or not law enforcement committed errors or there were other mistakes made during the investigative process.

These are some of the most common defenses to possession charges:

  • The evidence was obtained in an unlawful search and seizure
  • The drugs that were recovered do not belong to you, and you had no knowledge of their placement or location
  • The crime lab analysis determined that the drugs were not illegal
  • The drugs that were seized became lost or misplaced
  • The drugs were planted to frame the defendant
  • The defendant became a victim of entrapment

When faced with charges of this magnitude, having a Virginia Beach drug crime attorney offering support to you is essential. If you have been charged, you have every right to protect yourself, particularly if you believe that the accusations have no basis, or you were falsely accused.
