I’ve Been Charged With Drug Trafficking - Now What?
If you’ve been charged with drug trafficking, you should consult counsel immediately. You should further invoke your right to remain silent and refuse to answer any questions. It’s also strongly encouraged to take note of your version of events from the moment that the police interacted with you; pay particular attention to the following:
- If no warrant was used, how did the officers first come across you and at what point were you detained or arrested?
- Did they provide you with your right to counsel and right to silence?
- If a warrant was used, what time was it executed?
- When did they inform you of your rights?
- Were you stripsearched?
All of these details are crucial and may be the only way to get the evidence of your guilt excluded.
