How Search & Seizure Laws in California Can Help Your Defense!
California's search and seizure laws could play a big role in the defense
of your drug crime case. If you are facing drug crime charges of any nature,
then you should not wait to have Mr. Welch review the events leading up
to your arrest to determine if illegal search and seizure was involved.
Law enforcement officers are expected to abide by certain rules of conduct
when proceeding with a drug search, and if these rules are not strictly
followed then the charges that were made could be invalidated.
With an intimate understand of the state's search and seizure laws,
Mr. Welch has been able to successfully defend dozens of clients against
their drug crime charges. He may be able to do the same for you, so don't hesitate to
contact the firm today.
Penalties for Drug Crime Charges
- The penalties you could face upon conviction for a drug crime will depend
on the degree of the offense. Generally, drug crime offenses carry the
following types of penalties:
- Jail time
- Mandatory drug, alcohol, and / or psychological counseling
- Loss of income or loss of employment
Drug crime penalties can double when the offense occurs near a school or
when the offense involves minors. If you forego your right to legal representation
and you are ultimately convicted, you could experience difficulty in obtaining
any future job that requires government or security clearance.
