This post recaps our series on the handling of drug trafficking cases. Our goal with this series has been to help Arkansas defendants know what it is they should expect as their case moves forward. We cannot stress enough that when one is charged with drug trafficking, whether in state or federal court, they are facing serious charges and require assistance. A defendant in such a case should contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately.
We have addressed several topics over our last several posts. Subjects we have looked at included:
- Search and seizure issues stemming from surveillance by Arkansas police
- Suppressing evidence seized due to a confidential informant
- Challenging the credibility of confidential informants in an Arkansas Court
The important thing to take from each of these discussions is that law enforcement’s use of a confidential informant can create complex issues for a criminal defense lawyer to deal with. It is important that, when you are consulting with counsel, you ask your potential attorney if he or she has dealt with such situations in the past and that they explain specific steps they will take in such a case.
Our Little Rock criminal defense lawyers have over twenty-five years of combined experience in handling complex criminal cases. Once retained in a drug trafficking case we will immediately obtain all police reports, arrest reports, and other evidence. If a confidential informant was involved in the case then we will immediately work to determine whether it a Motion should be filed to challenge any search warrants. Should the defendant’s case proceed to trial then we will work to challenge the credibility of the witness in ways which we detailed throughout this series. If you are charged with trafficking then you are facing a serious situation. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation.
Our lawyers also handle matters in Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Springdale, Jonesboro, North Little Rock, Conway, Rogers, Pine Bluff, and throughout the rest of Arkansas.
