Eastern South Dakota Drug Crime Lawyers
Law enforcement officers commonly tell accused individuals that there is already evidence against them. This may not be true and does not mean that the prosecution will be able to secure a conviction. The evidence may have been obtained during an unlawful search and seizure. If this is the case, your attorney will move to have the evidence suppressed. Unlawfully obtained evidence cannot be used as direct evidence against a person in a criminal case.
This is just one of many ways that a skilled Eastern South Dakota drug crime lawyer may be able to successfully fight the serious drug charges you face. We welcome you to contact our firm for more information about your particular charges and to learn what an attorney can do to help.
