Penalties for a drug crime may vary greatly depending upon:* The type of drug
Particularly in drug cases, the legality of how law enforcement officials obtained the evidence used to support the State's case is a central and often-challenged issue. The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution protects individuals against unreasonable searches and seizures by the government. If the government's conduct violated the Fourth Amendment, the evidence is deemed inadmissible. Without the necessary evidence to prove the criminal charges, the State may have to dismiss its case against a defendant.
If you have been charged with a drug crime, it's important that you immediately contact an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney who can investigate and advise you as to whether the evidence leading to your arrest may have resulted from an illegal search or seizure.
