Frequently Asked Questions regarding drug crimes:
- The police want to make a deal with me – should I do it?
Do not talk to the police or make a “deal” with the police without an attorney. It is common for cops to offer a deal if you “work” for them, however, they will use you for as long as they want without a guarantee that your case will be dismissed. In some cases, working with law enforcement may be the best option for you but, do not make this decision until you have talked to an experienced drug crimes attorney. The police cannot make a deal, only a prosecutor has the authority to deal in a criminal case. Before talking to police call Twin Cities drug attorney, Jennifer Speas
- The police took my money, can they do that?
They can try. If you are charged with a State or Federal drug crime, the government may take your money, car, jewelry, and is some cases, your home. This is called forfeiture. It is important that you retain an experienced drug and forfeiture lawyer as soon as your property is seized because you have a limited number of days to challenge the forfeiture or you lose your property forever.
- Should I allow the police to search my home?
Only if they have a warrant. Generally speaking, if the police are asking for your permission it means they do not have probable cause to search. Make them get a warrant. If you consent to the search you lose the opportunity to challenge it as an illegal search. If your home or car has been searched call the experienced drug defense attorneys at Speas Law Firm, P.A.
