Understand Your Rights After An Arrest
Sometimes law enforcement officials take shortcuts, whether 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.
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.
