Police mistreatment and drug crimes defense in Texas

Police have an important job keeping the public safe, but sometimes, law enforcement officers can overstep the boundaries of their roles. Unfortunately, there are many examples of how Texas law enforcement violated the rights of citizens during traffic stops, while investigating crimes or simply when talking to people of interest in a case. Often, these individuals need a strong drug crimes defense as well as a way to speak out about the mistreatment they experienced. 

One example of this mistreatment happened during a traffic stop. Police noticed the driver had prescription painkillers in his car, and they found almost $1,000 on his person. They took the money and charged him with possession on the assumption he was selling these meds from his vehicle. He later was able to prove he had a valid prescription for the medication, but he never got his money back.

Under the guise of civil asset forfeiture, Texas law enforcement is able to sometimes take money and assets from citizens. They can do this without actually charging a person with a crime. There is a complex legal procedure by which they do this, but many believe it is direct violation of personal property rights and moral standards.

In addition to presenting a strong drug crimes defense, individuals facing drug charges may also want to speak up about potential violations of their rights when dealing with law enforcement. A person always has the right to protest the treatment he or she received while under investigation or arrest. An evaluation of the individual case can help a person understand his or her legal options moving forward.
