Being arrested for a drug-related crime leads to an incredibly confusing and emotional period of time. Drug charges can be complex at both Colorado state and federal levels, with the possible consequences ranging from probation to lengthy prison sentences. Most defendants fare better against these types of charges when they have the right kind of support behind them.
Representation is such an imperative aspect of facing drug charges for a number of reasons, but one of the most important things any defender does is assert and protect a person’s presumption of innocence. Far too often, those accused of committing drug violations are treated as if they are guilty by both police and the court of public opinion without any type of verdict ever being reached. Unfortunately, a significant number of defendants are unaware of what their rights actually are.
The Fourth Amendment is especially valuable when facing drug-related charges. This amendment protects citizens from unlawful searches and seizures by police or other governmental authorities. Unwarranted traffic stops, invalid search warrants and even coerced confessions can sometimes be excluded as evidence based on that amendment.
