Do feel like you are facing a sure-fire conviction following charges of manufacturing or cultivating an illegal substance? A high percentage of drug charges do not result in a conviction or even a plea bargain.
Why? Because prosecutors must overcome numerous legal hurdles to make your charges stick. For instance:
- Did police have a search warrant when entering your property? Without a warrant, certain searches or seizures are unconstitutional.
- Did police pull over your car? Law enforcement officials can only pull you over if they have a " reasonable suspicion" that a violation has occurred.
- Do police claim to have found drug-production paraphernalia, drug sales sheets or sale-ready drugs, or drugs in quantities that indicate an intent to distribute? Prosecutors may face significant obstacles in proving that materials and amounts indicate conclusively that you manufactured drugs or intended to sell drugs
