Drug Sales and Delivery Crime Defenses
Illegal Search and Seizure: This defense can be used if law enforcement officers use their power incorrectly and illegally require individuals to submit to a vehicle, home, or body search. If Rossen Law Firm can prove that police illegally searched you and then file what is called a “motion to suppress” to the clerk, the courts will suppress the evidence as having been illegally collected.
Lack of Knowledge: In order for an individual to be charged with the crime of drug sales and delivery, the State must prove that the accused had knowledge that the drug in their possession was illegal. Without that proof, the defense of lack of knowledge can be used and serve as a complete defense to the crime of possession.
Personal Use: In order for an individual to be charged with the crime of drug sales and delivery, the State must prove that the accused had the intention to sell it. Without that proof, the defense of personal use can be used and serve as a defense to the crime of possession with intent to sell and have it lowered to a drug possession charge.
