Suppression of Evidence in Drug Cases
Our attorneys have a comprehensive understanding of constitutional defenses
regarding the illegal acquisition of evidence. Whenever possible, we make
aggressive use of motions to suppress evidence based on invalid consent
to search, unlawful search and length of detention.
Use of drug dogs to search for illegal substances has inherent flaws. It may be possible
to suppress evidence obtained in that way.
Downward Plea Negotiations
Conviction on a
state drug charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana carries a sentence of
1 - 20 years in prison.
Possession with intent to distribute other drugs carries even harsher penalties.
In some Nebraska jurisdictions, it is possible to negotiate a plea agreement
in which a possession with intent to distribute marijuana charge is reduced to a
simple possession charge. This can be an attractive option, particularly in cases where
it is not possible to suppress evidence. For example, conviction on a
simple possession charge does not carry a minimum sentence in some state
cases, so it may even be possible to obtain probation with no jail time.
Plea agreements in cases involving cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin
pose greater challenges. The Berry Law Firm will explore all options.
In your case, we will carefully analyze these and other factual and legal
issues in your case. We will provide clear guidance as to your options,
so that you can make informed decisions about your case. As always, however,
the client has the last say when it comes to negotiating or going to trial.
