Illegal Search Defense

Drug Possession Defense in Lexington, Columbia and Other Areas

All drug charges are viewed as criminal offenses. Anytime you are arrested for violation of a drug law, your freedom and liberty are at stake. Federal, state, and local law enforcement are constantly out in force looking to make as many drug arrests as possible. In your drug arrest, there might have been broken rules, crossed lines and disregarded rights.

If you believe that the police search of your home, business, automobile, or person was illegal, this may create an important defense that can be used to negotiate with the prosecutor or to defend you in court. Determining whether or not correct procedures were followed and using that information on your behalf requires research into both national and South Carolina court precedent and procedure.

Examples of circumstances that deserve investigation in any drug arrest:

  • Miranda advisements
  • Warrantless searches
  • Coerced consents / authorizations
  • Police frisks and pat-downs
  • Cases involving drug dogs
  • Controlled buys
  • Confidential informants
  • Law enforcement raids
  • Juvenile stops and searches
