Multiple criminal charges likely
Prosecutors typically apply as many criminal charges as they can possibly justify after the conclusion of a search and seizure operation. Cases involving a large quantity of drugs and weapons may also involve federal criminal charges. When you find yourself in a complicated and high stakes situation after a drug raid, you may want to learn about your rights before speaking with investigators or entering a plea in court. Criminal defense attorneys serve people confronted by the possibility of prison. An attorney knowledgeable about defenses for state and federal drug charges might provide you with unbiased recommendations about how to respond. Without legal advice, you may have to make decisions based only on what a prosecutor’s office tells you.
