On behalf of Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A. posted in drug charges on Friday, February 3, 2017.
In our recent blog post, we discussed how Florida is a being used as a transaction base for some drug deals. It really isn’t a secret that I-95 is a major drug corridor that services the east coast. For this reason, law enforcement officers often place a big emphasis on watching this interstate for signs of drug activity.
If you are caught up in something that has to do with drugs in Broward County, you are facing serious time in prison. You should think carefully about how you are going to answer to the charges and move forward with your defense.
One of the most important things to do if you are stopped for anything drug-related, especially the higher level crimes like drug trafficking, is to invoke your rights as soon as possible. This includes your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney. The last think you need in one of these cases is to have the law enforcement officers misconstrue something you said in a way that makes you seem like you admitted guilt.
When your case begins to move through the criminal justice system, you may have questions. Learning about the charge you are facing and the options that you have for a defense strategy help you to remain an active part in your case. We want you to make the decisions since it is your life that is being affected by these charges.
Whether you are facing state level charges or federal charges, we are here to help you build and present your defense against the drug charges.
