Fighting Accusations Of A Drug Crime

State and federal law enforcement officials aggressively pursue drug-related crimes. The consequences of a drug-related arrest or prosecution can be long-lasting. These extend from immediate fines and jail time to lost scholarships or difficulties obtaining a professional license or passing a background check for housing or a job.

This means that if you are facing a charge, you need skilled legal counsel from an experienced defense attorney. And never try to talk yourself out of the situation before speaking with an attorney.

At Randall & Stump, PLLC, we have defended clients facing similar circumstances. We know what it takes to defend your rights and actually helped write the book on criminal procedure in North Carolina.

Types Of Cases We Handle

Our lawyers handle a broad range of felony and misdemeanor drug crime charges, including those involving alleged possession, sale, manufacturing and cultivation of the following illegal drugs:

  • Felony or midemeanor marijuana possession offenses, including federal marijuana charges
  • Drug trafficking offenses in both state and federal court
  • Offenses involving powder cocaine, whether filed in federal or state court
  • Offenses involving the manufacturing or distribution of methamphetamine
  • Designer drug offenses, including possession of MDMA, Molly and bath salts
  • Charges involving the possession or sale of heroin
  • Drug offenses related to maintaining a dwelling or vehicle

Determining Weight When Accused Of Illegal Prescription Drug Possession

We also defend clients accused of unauthorized use and sale of prescription drugs such as OxyContin, codeine, morphine, Percocet and Valium. Prescription drug charges can add up quickly: In determining the amount of the drug in question, the law considers the entire weight of the pill, not just the active ingredient, which sometimes leads to the individual being charged with drug trafficking for a quantity that may just be limited to a "personal use" amount.

Fourth Amendment: Your Protection Against Unlawful Search And Seizure

Search and seizure issues often play a pivotal role in drug crime cases. If a police officer violated the law in obtaining evidence of a drug crime, that evidence may be deemed inadmissible in court. We will scrutinize every aspect of the search and your subsequent arrest to determine if your constitutional rights were violated in any way. We will explore all viable defense strategies to help you avoid the consequences of a drug crime conviction.
