Typical Evidence in South Carolina Drug Charge Cases, Plus How To Get It and What To Do With It

Drug charges can seriously threaten your freedom and reputation. That requires being just as serious about getting the evidence and hiring an experienced, trained professional to build available defenses to protect you. 

South Carolina drug defense attorney describes the evidence you should expect in the typical case, and offers a glimpse how it might help you.

Hey folks, we're talking about what evidence you can expect in your drug case. Everyone charged with a drug crime in South Carolina has the right to discovery, meaning all evidence related to your case. Drug cases require specific evidence to convict you. Here's the evidence we expect in a typical drug case. If your case involves a traffic stop, a copy of the officer's dash cam video which might reveal highly technical constitutional defenses. If you're case involves a search warrant, evidence related to how officers got the warrant, and the evidence they got from it. That might also yield highly technical constitutional defenses. Chain of custody reports, which show pretty much everyone who handled the drugs in your case, and what they did with it. Crime lab drug test reports that verify the identity of the drugs after scientific testing. And reports showing the severity of your charge, and the basis for it, which is the weight of the drugs. Other cases involve other types of evidence, such as when you're involved with a drug dog or an informant. The real question is, when you get the evidence, what do you do with it? You need a seasoned professional to analyze the discovery and build a sound legal strategy around it. Because drug case defenses are often highly technical, you're probably not going to be able to find the defenses on your own unless you've got some legal training or access to a lot of legal resources. If you've got questions about drug discovery in your case or any other question in related to your drug case, call us for a free, no pressure strategy session to get your questions answers. I thank you for thinking about this with me and I hope to see you soon.
