Drug Crimes

There is no question that conviction for a drug charge can substantially alter your life. In addition to the potential for serious career damage, it can close the door to educational opportunities, harm personal relationships and even deprive you of life and liberty.

Drug charges are treated very seriously in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania.

If you or someone close to you has been charged with a drug crime, it is critical to partner with the strongest Pittsburgh drug crime lawyer you can find.

An experienced and efficient drug lawyer will carefully scrutinize all the collected evidence and may be able to prove that the police violated the suspect’s constitutional rights to be free of unjustified searches and seizures. The U.S constitution gives any person currently residing on U.S. soil, the right to:

  • Get Rid of Illegal Searches & Seizures: In order for the police to enter and search the suspect’s home, they must have a warrant, the suspect’s permission or they may do so if there is an emergency situation. In order to stop your car or interrogate you on the street, they will require an articulable suspicion that you are involved in illegal activities.
  • Be Silent: The suspect does not have any obligation to speak with the police at any point of the criminal proceedings.
  • Hire a Lawyer: You have every right to hire a lawyer when imposed with such severe charges so that he can represent you at every stage of the legal procedures and the police must immediately stop questioning you upon this request.
  • Swift & Fair Public Trial: The Constitution affords you the right to due process of law. This requires that your trial must be conducted according to the right procedures. It also requires that the outcome of your trial cannot have been manipulated or influenced by external factors.

In matters where the police have been respectful towards the suspect’s rights, a successful drug crime attorney in Pittsburgh can defend the case by posing the following reasonable doubts:

  • Unaware of Drug Possession: If the lawyer can prove that you were not aware of the fact that the drugs were in your possession, you will get rid of the charges.
  • Intention of distribution: If you do not admit to dealing drugs, prosecutors will try to prove your intention of distributing through the circumstantial evidence such as possession of baggies, scales and cash. However, your proficient legal attorney can argue that these evidences does not necessarily mean you intended to distribute.
  • Substance was drugs: In order to prove that the substance was drugs, the prosecutor will have to present evidence from a crime lab. However, if there are chances of the drug sample being mishandled by the crime lab or the police, this evidence might not be acceptable at the trial.
