Individuals facing drug charges have legal rights

A conviction on drug charges in Texas, including charges of drug possession, drug manufacturing or drug trafficking, can have a lifetime impact. Drug charges can have a negative impact on the convicted individual's ability to obtain a job, housing or an education. Criminal charges related to drugs require a strong criminal defense.

Authorities are required to follow important procedures for the protection of the accused individual's rights. At times, these rights may be violated, such as when authorities are conducting the search of a home, car or the person of an accused individual. If a defendant's rights have been violated by an illegal search or seizure, the defendant may have grounds to challenge the admissibility of the evidence seized. If the accused can show that his or her constitutional rights were violated because officers did not have a reasonable basis for a traffic stop, or probable cause to make the arrest, the charges can be dismissed.

A criminal defendant's rights cannot be violated as part of the process of collecting evidence against them and it is important that authorities be held accountable if the defendant's rights are violated.

Drug charges can include possession, manufacturing and trafficking charges related to marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and prescription drugs and the penalties and consequences can be harsh and lasting. A strong criminal defense strategy can lead to the reduction or dismissal of the charges depending on the circumstances. As a result, it is important for any individual facing drug charges to prepare a strong criminal defense strategy.
