The Police Found Drugs, But They Weren't Mine. What Now?

A common statement made to police who have found drugs in a car, in a home, or on a person is, "They are not mine." It is no surprise that the police are unlikely to believe that the drugs are not yours. If you have been accused of having illegal drugs in your possession, it is vital that you do not make any statements to the police without first consulting your lawyer. It is your right to remain silent and to have your lawyer present during any questioning by the authorities. It is imperative that you exercise that right and get a criminal lawyer immediately.

An attorney from the firm will answer any questions you have, review the evidence against you, and craft a strategy to help you fight a criminal conviction. In these cases, it is not uncommon for officers to make mistakes or incorrectly place blame on the innocent. If your rights were violated in any way, such as by an illegal search and seizure or a failure to read you your rights, then we will work to have the evidence against you suppressed, and the charges against you dismissed.
