Defense strategies are important when refuting drug offenses

If an Illinois police officer searches a vehicle, home or person and winds up making an arrest, the individual taken into custody may encounter numerous legal challenges if prosecutors file charges. Especially concerning suspected drug offenses, penalties under conviction are often severe. A defendant found guilty in court may spend time in jail or even state prison, as well as face stiff fines.

Being formally accused of a drug crime, even before a trial takes place, can certainly impact your personal and professional life. Your job might be at risk if you have to call off work repeatedly to attend court sessions or otherwise address the issue. If it is not the first time you've been in trouble regarding drug charges, it may also cause problems in your marriage or family relationships.

This is why it's always best to build a strong defense from the start. In fact, many cases never even go to trial. An attorney might spot a personal rights violation in a particular situation and challenge the admissibility of certain evidence and/or seek a complete dismissal of the case.

Facing charges for drug offenses in Illinois or anywhere is no small matter. Even if you know you are not guilty of the crimes prosecutors have accused you of, it does not guarantee that a judge or jury will not convict you. Richard F. Blass & Associates, LLC is committed to providing strong support as you build a defense strategy and determine a best course of action to secure the most positive outcome possible in your case.
