Drug charges in Michigan can have a significant impact on your life. That impact can be exacerbated if you fail to put forth a defense strong enough to confront aggressive prosecutors. The penalties you might face if convicted could include prison, fines and damage to your reputation. You might also find that obtaining a job and housing may be difficult if you have been convicted of a felony. Therefore, if you are facing allegations of drug trafficking, drug possession or another type of drug crime, then you need to prepare a thorough criminal defense in hopes of avoiding as many, if not all, penalties.
How do you prepare your defense? It depends on the facts of your case and the applicable laws. However, there are some things that should be done in every case. For example, you will need to identify witnesses whose testimony may help strengthen your case. You should also analyze the prosecution's evidence, witness list and documentation, which may be obtained through discovery. Once you have this information, then you can craft a strategy for poking holes in the prosecution's case.
Whether you want to get evidence suppressed, attack witness credibility or engage in fruitful negotiations, you'll likely need legal experience, knowledge and persuasiveness on your side. These skills can be found in a dedicated and competent legal team, like the one found at David G. Moore Attorney at Law.
