CRIMES & ACCUSATIONS

Drug Crimes:

If law officers come to your door or stops your car, and you believe they might accuse you of a drug crime or other wrongdoing, call (573)636-9200 immediately, or, SIMPLY EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT, AND DO NOT CONSENT TO ANY SEARCHES, NO MATTER WHAT THEY PROMISE YOU. Drug crimes often come down to what the government can actually prove, especially if they do not have an admission by the defendant. Witnesses in drug cases are often unreliable (snitches), and evidence and statements may be subject to suppression from being used in evidence.

Especially in a time when jury nullification is growing, a lawyer who knows search and seizure law, who has a reputation for trying cases that are considered by some to be unwinnable, and who makes the state work to cover every potential weakness in their evidence, can also get better plea offers, deferrals, or other favorable outcomes.

On the other hand, in drug cases that are fueled by a defendant’s addiction, remedies such as drug court, treatment programs, deferrals, and probations, among others, can often prevent a criminal record. They can also preserve jobs and employability, and voting and gun rights, as well as benefit a defendant in fighting addiction, the medical issue at the root of many drug cases.
