Crack cocaine possession and trafficking charges carry significant penalties that can impact your future. If you have been charged with crack cocaine possession or trafficking, you should contact the New York crack cocaine possession & trafficking lawyers from Raiser & Kenniff, PC for legal advice and representation.
Crack cocaine possession and trafficking cases are subject to a variety of complex laws and procedures. Many cases may have certain defenses that are not always obvious. If you have been charged with possession or trafficking, you should contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to better ensure that your rights are protected. If you are under investigation for these types of crimes, you should also contact an attorney to assist you during the investigation.
Because crack cocaine possession and trafficking cases involve illegal controlled substances, the prosecution must be able to prove that the drugs are what they claim. This often requires the prosecution to utilize lab experts and other testing procedures. In order for the lab or test results to be admissible into evidence in your case, certain procedures must have been followed. Sometimes, law enforcement fails to follow the correct procedures. This can draw doubt into the validity of the lab results and give rise to a defense in your case. An experienced crack cocaine possession & trafficking lawyer will be well familiar with all of these procedures.
Other defenses may also be available if the police violated your constitutional rights. If the police obtained the drugs or other evidence without probable cause or a warrant, then that evidence may be excluded from evidence. Also, if you made incriminating statements, but were not properly advised of your Miranda rights, those statements could also be removed from consideration in your case. There may be numerous defenses available in your case, which may not be readily apparent. Because of this, you should hire a criminal defense attorney to review the police report and other evidence used to charge you with the crime. An attorney will be able to identify whether any possible defenses are present.
After you are formally charged, a crack cocaine possession & trafficking lawyer can represent you in court and help you understand what is happening. If you have formal court hearings where evidence is presented and witness are called, then a criminal defense attorney can appear in court and advocate on your behalf. An attorney will make sure the prosecution is held to their burdens of proof and plays by the rules. An attorney will raise objections when necessary and can cross examine witnesses.
Crack cocaine possession & trafficking lawyers will be able to draw upon their experience to help you understand the possible outcomes of your case. If your case has limited defenses available, then an attorney can seek to negotiate a plea agreement on your behalf. Regardless of the path of your case, an attorney will protect your rights throughout the process and will help you make informed decisions.
Crack cocaine possession & trafficking charges can result in significant consequences, including fines, jail, probation, treatment requirements, loss of rights, among other things. It is important that you understand what consequences are likely, so you can decide how to proceed. Far too many persons charged with these crimes merely plead guilty, without understanding all of the possible repercussions. A criminal defense attorney will explain what consequences may arise from your case and may pursue action to reduce the effect of a conviction.
