I see many clients where a charge of possession of an illegal substance, has been made against the defendant as the result of an auto stop.
When defending these cases a defense attorney should investigate thoroughly whether the vehicle stop was lawful. Did the law-enforcement officer have legal cause to stop the vehicle?
The defending attorney should bring into question whether the law-enforcement officer had a legal right to search the vehicle.
If a defendant was questioned by the police and the defendant gave incriminating statements, the defense attorney may bring into question whether those statements were obtained legally.
If you have questions about the above, or if you have been accused of illegal possession of drugs, contact the drug defense Attorney Scott Miller in Alpharetta, Georgia for a free consultation. 770-408-1001
