Defense Strategies for Drug Crime Charges

Our team will conduct a thorough investigation into the facts surrounding your arrest and the charges you face. We will carefully evaluate all available evidence and use it to build a strong case on your behalf. Our goal is to either get your charges reduced or dismissed altogether. If necessary, we are prepared to take your case to trial and fight for a favorable verdict.

Some common defense strategies for drug crimes include:

  • Illegal search and seizure: One of the most common defenses in drug cases is challenging the legality of the search and seizure that led to the discovery of the drugs. If law enforcement officers conducted an illegal search without a warrant or probable cause, any evidence obtained as a result may be deemed inadmissible in court.
  • Lack of probable cause: Defendants may argue that law enforcement officers lacked probable cause to stop, search, or arrest them. Without sufficient justification for their actions, any evidence obtained may be excluded from the case.
  • Unlawful entrapment: Defendants may argue that they were entrapped by law enforcement officers into committing a drug-related offense that they would not have otherwise committed. Entrapment occurs when law enforcement induces someone to commit a crime they were not predisposed to commit.
  • Chain of custody issues: Defendants may challenge the integrity of the chain of custody of the drugs or other evidence, arguing that there were gaps or inconsistencies in how the evidence was handled or documented, raising doubts about its reliability.
  • Mistaken identity: Defendants may claim mistaken identity, arguing that they were not the person in possession of the drugs or that the drugs did not belong to them.
  • Lack of knowledge or intent: Defendants may assert that they were unaware of the presence of drugs or that they did not intend to possess or distribute illegal substances. This defense is particularly common in cases involving constructive possession, where drugs are found in a location accessible to multiple individuals.
  • Insufficient evidence: Finally, defendants may argue that the prosecution lacks sufficient evidence to prove their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This may involve challenging the credibility of witnesses, the reliability of laboratory tests, or the sufficiency of the evidence presented.

Prosecutors must prove each and every element of a drug crime beyond a reasonable doubt. Our drug defense attorneys in Hays County will work to cast doubt on the prosecution's case and, when possible, introduce evidence that supports your defense.
