Charges plus criminal defense affects outcome

Posted by Saul Steinberg | Feb 03, 2020 | 0 Comments

Facing drug charges in New Jersey does not necessarily mean the defendant involved will be convicted in court. Depending on the type of criminal defense he or she presents, any number of things can occur that turns the situation in his or her favor. For instance, if the court is convinced that there is a lack of evidence, the judge overseeing a particular case might rule a dismissal. Just as the two people who were recently arrested and charged with drug crimes are guaranteed an opportunity to refute the charges against them, any person in this state or beyond facing similar charges is guaranteed the same opportunity.

In this case, an extensive drug investigation concluded on a recent Wednesday. After executing several search warrants, investigators claim to have seized cocaine, marijuana, firearms and a large amount of cash. A 44-year-old man and 37-year-old woman were taken into police custody and charged with first degree illegal drug possession with intent to distribute.

The man is also facing charges related money laundering and firearms crimes. Several local task forces took on the investigation as a joint effort. However, neither an arrest nor drug charges are a final end to an investigation. In fact, if a person can prove that a personal rights violation took place during a search or arrest, a case might never go to trial, or, if it does, certain evidence might be deemed inadmissible in court.

This is why most people facing such charges in New Jersey make it a top priority to secure criminal defense support. With the help of an experienced criminal law attorney, they can immediately begin planning a strategy to help minimize the possible negative consequences of their circumstances. It is also a lot less stressful to allow a personal legal advocate to speak and act on one's behalf in court.
