Experienced Drug Crimes Attorney in San Diego

If you are charged with, under suspicion, or under investigation of committing a federal drug crime, you need the help of a federal drug crime attorney in San Diego. The penalties for these drug crimes can be severe especially if you have prior offenses. Don’t take on this burden alone. An experienced attorney has the experience needed to strategize possible defenses for your particular federal drug crime case.

Possible Federal Drug Crimes Defenses in San Diego

One of the most common federal drug crimes defenses is unreasonable search or seizure. Unless the arrest was made at a border crossing, the police are bound by law to follow certain procedures that involve obtaining a warrant and/or having probable cause to suspect that someone is transporting, selling or possessing drugs. This means that, by law, they can never search you, your home or your car just because they want to do so.

Another possible another defense is to claim the drugs weren’t yours by constructive possession. This means that you did not physically carry drugs on you, but that they were on your property, such as in your car.

Crime labs can also conclude that something is a controlled substance when it actually isn’t. A federal drug crime attorney in San Diego, such as Marc S. Kohnen, can defend you with your federal drug case.
