If you suspect that your arrest for a drug crime in Arizona was the result of a warrant-less search — an illegal search and seizure by law enforcement — you should not allow your future and freedoms to be put at risk.
You should not have to face the life-changing prospects of a lengthy jail or prison term, heavy fines that drain your finances, separation from loved ones and a criminal record as a felon. You need a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side who knows your Fourth Amendment rights and works hard to protect them.
The fact that you have constitutional rights when drugs or stolen goods are planted on your person, or in your home or motor vehicle, means that the warrant to search your possessions should have “particularity.” Authorities must state specifically what it is they are looking for. You should probably also think back to your arrest and try to remember is there was an attempt to coerce you into a confession for something you didn’t do, and if any assets that are rightfully yours have been forfeited to others by the government since you were indicted.
You may have never seen, or realized you were in the presence of, the “usual suspects’ of controlled substances: marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, methamphetamine, party drugs or prescription drugs. This fact is easily overlooked by invading local or state police detectives with an agenda. Right now the best thing you can do, for yourself and those closest to you, is to retain the most dedicated, energetic legal representation you can find — a lawyer who will aggressively safeguard your interests, in and out of court.
