Drug Possession Charges
Few things create more confusion or fear than being arrested and charged
with a drug crime. Not only will you be escorted to a local police station,
you may not be allowed to see your family members and will go through
the unfamiliar process of being booked for a crime.
Drug charges should never be taken lightly; those who are convicted may
face several problems including steep fines, incarceration and loss of
employment. Immediately upon being charged with a drug crime, it is crucial
that defendants seek the help of qualified drug defense lawyers like those

Marcos, and Seguin.

Understand Your Rights After an Arrest
Sometimes law enforcement officials take shortcuts, whether it is in finding
evidence or in making arrests. But you have rights, and law enforcement
officials should not get away with violating them. This is why it is important
for you to understand your rights and whether or not they have been violated
during your arrest.
After an arrest, it is important to remember that:
- Law enforcement agencies must allow those facing drug charges to place
a telephone call. Generally, that call will go to a family member who
should be instructed to find a criminal defense attorney.
- Law enforcement officials must have a warrant or probable cause to search
you in the first place. If your rights were violated during the course
of the search, then any evidence obtained can be thrown out by a judge.
- Before agreeing to any tests that law enforcement wishes to do, you should
call and get qualified legal help from The Kyle Law Firm. The importance
of this call cannot be stressed enough due to the high stakes involved
with a drug conviction. One of our attorneys can help you navigate the
bond process, help you prepare a defense and tell you your rights while
you are in custody.
Drug Possession Penalties
The charges for drug possession will vary depending on the type of drug
and amount of drugs in your possession at the time of your arrest. While
drug possession is often charged as a misdemeanor, some circumstances
may warrant more serious
felony charges. Additionally, if the defendant has faced charges in the past,
particularly if there has been a prior conviction, defendants will likely
face harsher penalties.
