Defense for Massachusetts residents accused of drug crimes

From a legal standpoint, it can be difficult to understand the ramifications and consequences of a drug crime. This is largely due to how many different crimes there are, the lines between each of which are very thin. For example, being in possession of a drug is not the same as being in possession of a drug and attempting or intending to sell it. Being in possession of drug paraphernalia is not the same as being in possession of the drug for which the paraphernalia is allegedly used.

When you are facing charges for a drug crime, it is important to know exactly what you are accused of, and in many cases it is just as important to know why you are being accused of it. If police find illegal drugs in your vehicle for example, it may surprise you to learn that you are not in a hopeless situation. It may seem like having drugs in your car is a pretty open and shut case of drug possession, but this is hardly ever the case.

If police did not have probable cause to pull you over and/or search your car in the first place, you may be able to come away with a lighter sentence or no sentence at all. If evidence is obtained illegally, such as searching your residence without a warrant, then that evidence could be thrown out of the case. These are just a few examples that could see you acquitted even in the most seemingly dire of circumstances.

Of course the best way to ensure that you can build a solid defense case that makes use of all the laws surrounding drug crimes is to consult an attorney. At the Salerno Law Offices, we take pride in using our decades of experience to help people of Massachusetts defend themselves against criminal charges that could change their lives.
