If you are facing drug charges, no matter what they are for, it’s important to understand what you can do to fight these charges. There’s no reason for you to give up, or try to represent yourself, when charged with drug possession, intent to distribute or any other drug crime in Colorado. So, how can you win a drug charge case in Summit County?
There are myriad ways you and your criminal defense attorney can meet your drug charge in Colorado head-on, and it all begins with examining the arrest. Did an unlawful search and subsequent seizure lead to your arrest and the charges being levied against you? If so, this is the defense you need to build out to have the charges either dropped or reduced.
Is it possible that the drugs were planted on you or in your vehicle when not paying attention during a traffic stop? It wouldn’t be the first time this has happened and likely won’t be the last.
How about the crime lab analysis? Was one ever conducted on the drugs that were confiscated from you? If not, you have an argument that what you have been charged with might not correct if the drugs were never analyzed.
Are the drugs in question now missing? If so, there’s no reason your case should continue. When there is no evidence to provide in court, it makes it more difficult for the prosecution to prove their case.
Facing a drug charge is a serious issue that should never be taken lightly. The quicker you begin building a defense against the charges, the better off your situation could turn out in the end. Just be sure you have a plan in place with your criminal defense attorney.
