Skilled Drug Crime Defense From A Former Police Officer And Prosecutor

If you have been arrested for a drug crime such as possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing/delivery of controlled substances, or possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, you are facing a possible severe sentence that could greatly impact you and your family’s life.

If you face drug charges, The Law Offices of James Angelino can help. As a former assistant district attorney in Denton County and a former Dallas police officer, I have a broad perspective on drug crime cases, including those alleging manufacturing and sale of illegal drugs. My 19 years of experience as a certified peace officer allows me to use my knowledge of police procedures to get you the best result possible.

As a criminal defense attorney, I draw upon this experience, along with a deep understanding of search and seizure law, to carefully scrutinize law enforcement’s investigation in order to uncover any deficiency that may exist in the case against you.

Exploring All Viable Defense Strategies

There are many things a knowledgeable attorney can do for you. The first two things that must be looked at are, in certain cases, was the stop or search legal? If it isn’t, I may be able to file a motion to suppress the evidence. If granted, none of the evidence found during an illegal stop or search can be used against you at trial. This would usually mean the charges would be dropped. The strategies can be used in any type of drug case, including those in which marijuana possession and illegal use of THC waxes and oils is alleged.

In some cases, the amount of drugs law enforcement may find is so little that your case may be dismissed or the charges may be lowered. A well-versed and experienced attorney will be able to negotiate these types of cases with the prosecution and get the best results possible for you.

Getting The Help You Need

If you have a drug problem and are charged with possession of a controlled substance, there is another option for you. Drug treatment, in many cases, will get your punishment lowered or in some cases dismissed. Many programs are available to someone who may have a drug problem. I have vast experience dealing with drug treatment facilities and can help you get the help you need, which in turn will help your case.
