Drug Charges

The drug menace is on the rise, and the law enforcement agencies make thousands of arrests in the state of Pennsylvania each year. Drug offense charges related to possession, manufacturing, sale, and trafficking of drugs.

Often, drug charges come along with other charges, such as gun violations or even traffic charges.

If you or one of your family members has been arrested on these charges, apart from loss of face in the community, you may have to pay hefty fines and also face jail sentences. Your future is now dependent on your attorney and his/her skills. Hence you need a top-rated Pittsburgh criminal defense lawyer who specializes in this field of law and can defend your rights and earn you your freedom.

What You Need To Know

When charged with a drug offense, most people fall victim to the situation without realizing the fact that the Constitution safeguards their rights. Any act of overzealous approach by the law enforcement agencies makes grounds stronger for the charges to be dismissed even before the trial actually begins. If you or your loved one has been charged keep in mind that –

  • Illegal Search and Seizures Can Be Challenged – If your car was pulled over or your house was searched without a warrant, the ground is strong enough to mount a counterattack on the officers. Under the law police cannot search your house or pull over your car without pronounceable suspicion of illegal activity. They cannot make arrests without valid grounds, and such acts can easily be challenged.
  • You Have The Right To Remain Silent – You aren’t bound to talk to the police officers or make a statement when your house is being searched, or you’ve been pulled over and you are found to be in possession of banned drugs.
  • Request For An attorney – You have the right to request for a Pittsburgh attorney to represent you, and when you make this request, the police have to immediately stop questioning you.
  • Fair Trial Is Your Right – Under no circumstances can you be denied a fair trial. If the jury is likely to be biased against you and your attorney can prove it the case can be shifted to another jurisdiction.

Choosing the right Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney can be the difference between years in prison and going free.

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 that you 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 pieces of evidence do 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.

At Logue Law Group, our Pittsburgh drug crime attorneys use our comprehensive knowledge and tested trial experience to do whatever’s possible to defend our clients against misdemeanor and felony drug criminal charges on both the federal and state level, including:
