Collin County Drug Offense Lawyer

Even the most average drug offense involves a multitude of constitutional and state protections. Whether the offense is a Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana, Felony Manufacturing or Federal Drug Trafficking, law enforcement agents must scrupulously adhere to the laws that relate to search and seizure, confessions, right to counsel, as well as the scientific methods of identifying illegal substances. Even if the State can prove their investigation was conducted without infringing on the rights of the accused they still must prove their case factually. In a possession case this means that the State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a Defendant had actual care, custody, control or management of an illegal substance. Both legal and factual hurdles in a drug case can be difficult for the prosecutor to overcome.
