STRONG DEFENSE FOR MARIJUANA CHARGES
AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION AT AFFORDABLE PRICES
While marijuana use and possession is now legal in some states and under debate in others, marijuana possession is still illegal in South Carolina. If you are charged with possession of marijuana, you should not take the charges lightly. A conviction can lead to a criminal record that will make it difficult to find a job and even find housing.
I am criminal defense attorney William A. Hodge. At my law firm in Columbia, you get personal attention, honest advice and aggressive representation. I know that a drug charge is a major disruption to your life. I will fight to help you resolve it in a way that minimizes the impact on you.
CHALLENGING THE CHARGES WITH A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION
The burden of proof in criminal cases falls with the prosecution. One way to make it difficult, if not impossible, for a prosecutor to prove the allegations is to expose errors. Police and prosecutors operate under certain rules. If they violate the rules, it may benefit your case. As your lawyer, some of things I will consider in my investigation are:
- WHETHER POLICE CONDUCTED A LAWFUL SEARCH, INCLUDING WHETHER THEY HAD A VALID SEARCH
- WARRANT OR PROBABLE CAUSE
- IF POLICE DID HAVE A WARRANT, WHETHER IT WAS EXECUTED PROPERLY
- WHETHER POLICE ACCURATELY WEIGHED THE MARIJUANA THAT WAS FOUND
- WHETHER THE DRUG ANALYSIS WAS CONDUCTED PROPERLY
“A marijuana possession charge does not have to ruin your life. I will aggressively pursue the best resolution for you in state or federal court.” – William A Hodge
