Search & Seizure

Birmingham Drug Crime Lawyer

In order for the prosecuting attorney to file charges against someone for a drug crime, they must have sufficient evidence that establishes the defendant's involvement in the crime. For this reason, the collection of evidence is one of the most important elements of prosecuting a drug case. In an effort to collect the evidence needed to press charges, the police or detectives involved in investigating the crime may cut corners, make mistakes, or blatantly violate a suspect's rights against an unlawful search and seizure. If the police violated federal search and seizure laws, any evidence they obtained during the search can be suppressed in favor of the defense.
