Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyer
The most severe drug laws in Kentucky relate to trafficking in an illegal substance. “Trafficking” includes making, selling, giving away or possessing controlled substances with the intent to do one of those things. When you have been accused of trafficking in drugs, you are facing steep fines, prison time, a criminal record and other sanctions.
I have more than 25 years’ experience in criminal defense, defending the rights and the freedom of clients charged with drug crimes, including trafficking. I have tried more than 80 cases before juries, and I try cases throughout the commonwealth of Kentucky in state and federal courts.
I use every available tool and strategy to aggressively combat the criminal charges against you. I know how to combat unfair charges with hard evidence and persuasive arguments.
Intent To Sell
The kinds of things police look for in an effort to show intent to sell include:
- Large quantities of drug seized
- Individual packaging, like plastic baggies or bindles
- The presence of scales used to weigh drugs
- Large amounts of cash
- The existence of communications regarding prices or amounts
- Guns, weapons
Unlawful Search And Seizure
The Constitution grants you the right to be free from illegal searches, seizures and arrests by state and federal authorities. However, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to enforce those rights.
Was a search of your vehicle, home or person unlawful? A skilled defense attorney can aggressively combat unlawful search and seizure tactics. Depending upon the facts of the case, a violation of your fourth amendment rights may be grounds to pursue a complete dismissal of the charges against you.
