The truth behind the Drug Charges
It does not need to be stressed that every prosecution trial is unique in its own way. And therefore it follows that the strategy for defence will also be exclusive for a particular trial. Your drug defence lawyer will be in a position to plan a foolproof strategy only after getting a concrete idea of about how the prosecutor intends to proceed with your case. Your defence attorney will also be affected by the answers that you give to the questions asked by the prosecutor.
Your lawyer will have to thrash out a stratagem that’ll kill two birds with one stone i.e. he’ll make you appear innocent in the eyes of the law without putting you into a bad light. He’ll try his best to circumstantially prove that you had no knowledge about the drugs that were found in the garage of your car. That is of course not to say that he’ll concoct a story and impress on the solicitor that you’ve been framed with drug charges with malafide intentions.
Therefore, the least that your drug defence attorney expects from you is that you tell him the truth, the whole truth, and nothing else but the truth of everything that transpired. You should know that there are always two sides to a story. The police officer who apprehended you for drug use charges might have a story to relate that might be completely different from your version.
For instance, you might not agree to the officer narrating to the prosecutor that you had deliberately kept the cocaine packets beneath the seats of your car with the intention of drug peddling. But in order to defend yourself effectively, you’d need to tell the attorney what actually happened.
