Possible Defense Strategies
Many drug crimes cases begin with police pulling over a suspect’s vehicle. However, if law enforcement does not have a valid reason to pull you over, your arrest is unconstitutional. When you review the details of your case with your Grand Rapids drug crime attorney, ask if the reason the police pulled you over can be challenged on constitutional grounds.
Illegal Search & Seizure
According to the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, it is illegal for police to search or seize your property without probable cause. If you want to challenge your arrest, you will need to prove that police did not follow the proper procedures to initiate a search. It is also important to note that police cannot search your trunk or glove box if they do not have a warrant. However, if there are illegal drugs or paraphernalia sitting in plain sight inside your vehicle or home, then police can legally conduct a search. Any evidence obtained through an illegal search and seizure cannot be used against you.
There are some cases where law enforcement will carry out a sting operation involving an informant who encourages the suspect to sell or distribute illegal drugs. In some of these cases, it can be argued that the actions taken by police amount to entrapment.
