If you are charged with a drug crime including cocaine or crack cocaine, it doesn’t mean you should simply accept all the potential consequences without fighting. There may be evidence in your favor that could cause charges to be dismissed. There may be violations of your constitutional rights resulting in the suppression of evidence against you. Or there may be negotiations with the Prosecutor to drop or amend the charges to lesser offenses.
There are various defense strategies could affect the charges against or reduce the penalties. Were the drugs in your “actual” possession? Or, if not and the Prosecutor alleges “constructive” possession, does that apply in this set of circumstances? How were the drugs discovered and was the discovery the result of an illegal search and seizure that violated your Constitutional Rights.
