Fighting Drug Crime Charges
Fourth Amendment search and seizure issues often play an important role in drug crime cases. As a former prosecutor, James D. Franks knows the rules police must play by when executing drug arrests. If your drug arrest came as a result of an illegal police search, he will aggressively fight to have that evidence thrown out. We will explore every legitimate defense to help you avoid the consequences of drug crime charges such as:
- Drug possession
- Drug trafficking
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Prescription drug crimes
- Prescription drug fraud/forged prescriptions/”doctor shopping”
In Mississippi, you can be charged with a felony drug crime for possessing two or more drug ingredients, or precursors. Drug precursor charges often involve methamphetamine ingredients and can be leveled against people for carrying commonplace items such as lithium batteries and fertilizer.
Drug crime defense lawyer James D. Franks is well versed in Mississippi’s drug precursor laws and can help you understand your rights and options if you have been charged with this offense.
