What Are Some Defenses for Drug Distribution Charges?

Law enforcement and prosecutors have a reputation for making damning accusations without having the proof they need. Remember, you are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, so it is up to you and your legal team to properly question the charges and evidence against you. At the Law Office of Patrick J. McLain, PLLC, we have helped many of our clients to successfully fight their criminal charges and obtain a favorable outcome.

As your advocate, we may seek to prove that:

  • You had no knowledge of the substances in question: If someone else snuck illegal drugs into your vehicle without your knowledge, you should not be convicted of such a crime.
  • You were forced to transport these substances: When another person threatens an individual with harm to transport their illegal substances, the person caught with the substance should not be treated as a dangerous criminal.
  • There is no evidence to prove you had any of the substances in question: More often than you might think, law enforcement fails to have any evidence for their charges. By holding them accountable for their accusations, we may be able to help your situation.
  • You had a legal right to possess these substances: If you are a professional whose license ensures lawful possession of controlled substances, the judge needs to know that.

At the Law Office of Patrick J. McLain, PLLC, we understand what it takes to build strong cases for our clients. Your freedom is our priority, and we want to reassure you that your situation is still unsure. With the right planning and preparation, we have helped many of our clients to successfully petition for reduced or even dropped charges. There are many different details that we must first survey before building a case, so call our Dallas criminal defense lawyer right away to learn more about what to do next.
