Being accused of committing a crime is often an emotionally volatile time that can be further complicated when multiple criminal allegations are involved. Defense strategies that are appropriate for drug charges are not necessarily the most effective for juvenile or sexual offenses. Because of this, Texas defendants who are facing multiple state crime charges of various natures usually require the careful guidance of attorneys familiar with defending against many different allegations.
While months-long investigations that lead to multiple drug charges tend to make the news, this is not necessarily how most drug-related allegations surface. In many instances, drug charges are the result of traffic stops or other type of innocuous encounters. However, this does not mean that the discovery of alleged drug-related materials was necessarily legal. Many defendants are surprised to learn that the evidence being used to prosecute them was illegally seized.
