Laws and Penalties Surrounding Drug Trafficking

War on Drugs in America
Since its inception in 1971, America's War on Drugs has been the driving force behind the great increase in drug-related arrests, allowing for much longer prison sentences at conviction. While many arrests may be warranted due to overwhelming evidence or an offender's guilty confession, this does not mean that every drug crime is handled appropriately by the legal system.
In fact, many members of law enforcement and the legal system alike have been known to make crucial mistakes in an investigation, during an arrest or at certain points in criminal proceedings. Whether these errors are a result of simple human error or a concerted effort to tamper with evidence to influence the outcome of a case does not matter, these types of mistakes can make the prosecution's case impossible to move forward. Let us aid you in your case by investigating and uncovering flaws in the prosecutor's case.
