One of the stereotypes about drug charges is that “they’re all the same.” Every drug offender is “the same.” The cases proceed in “the same” way. The people who read about these cases think “the same” way about the alleged perpetrators: more poignantly that they are probably guilty even though the person alleged to have committed the crime has his or her presumption of innocence until proven otherwise.
While we won’t necessarily get into every point we mentioned above, we do want to target one part of the “sameness” that some people feel about drug cases: the details in each drug case matter. They are not ubiquitous elements of a criminal case. They are, in fact, incredibly important and defining traits of an elaborate event in time.
No criminal case is going to be “the same,” but this is especially true for drug cases. What controlled substance was involved? What charges were filed against the accused individual? What evidence is there to substantiate those charges — if there is any? Where was the crime allegedly perpetrated? What consequences are being sought by the prosecution? Was the investigation done properly? Were the accused individual’s rights upheld throughout the process?
These are just a few of the many, many different questions that need to be asked when a drug case is filed. If you are arrested and accused of committing drug crimes in the state of Florida, you need to be well represented. Lindsey & Ferry have extensive experience with defending drug cases.
