Understanding Fourth Amendment Rights Is Critical

Possession, manufacturing, distribution and other drug-related crimes range from misdemeanors to felonies. The level of the offense with which you are charged depends on many factors. These include the amount of drugs, presence of paraphernalia or a criminal record, among other things.

Nearly every case involving controlled substances has one thing in common: Fourth Amendment rights. The Fourth Amendment enumerates the right to privacy, and protects citizens from illegal search and seizure. Police must follow strict rules regarding the collection of evidence. When their mistakes or misconduct violates your rights in any criminal case, the evidence cannot be used against you in court.

These rights are very important, but the laws regarding search and seizure rights are very confusing. It is crucial you have a criminal defense attorney who understands the nuances of these very complex laws and knows how to use them to litigate in your defense. I do.
