Harsh Consequences Of A Drug Conviction
Drug crimes are treated strictly in Indiana with penalties that include time behind bars, hefty fines, community service and probation. Often these cases start with a search. Did you agree to a search of your vehicle during a traffic stop without knowing a passenger left behind cocaine? Did officers uncover marijuana plants or methamphetamine at your residence through a search warrant?
You need to talk with a skilled criminal defense lawyer who will stand beside you and stand up for your rights.

Suppression Of Evidence
In both state and federal drug cases, issues can affect whether the prosecution can introduce evidence at trial. For instance, if a traffic stop lacked a reasonable and articulable suspicion, the prosecution might not be able to use evidence against you or prove the case. Other defenses often relate to search warrant issues, involuntary consent to search or an improper interrogation.
Our attorneys recognize issues that other might miss. We can defend you, if you have been accused of one of the following types of offenses:
- Possession of cocaine, heroin or prescription medications
