Russell Defense Firm Ethical Advocacy for Your Case

What To Do When Arrested for Drug Possession

Have you been arrested for drug possession and are now wondering what you should do? First of all, you should get a lawyer immediately. An experienced legal representative will be able to guide you through the process and build a strong defense on your behalf.

Next, don't talk to the police. Take control of the information and refuse to give it to the police. Every piece of information that they have will be used to put you in jail. That is their job, so try not to make it easy for them. If the police call you on the phone or approach you at any time, hang up the phone or walk away. The police cannot "make a deal" without the prosecutor. So keep any leverage you have until you meet with your drug crimes lawyer.

Here are some more tips to remember:

  • Don't go back to the place where you got arrested.
  • Don't talk to anyone else about your case. This includes family members and especially friends.

Remember, every battle is won before it is fought. Russell Defense Firm realizes that the police cannot "go back" and "redo" a warrant or arrest. This leaves the prosecution vulnerable to attack on paper. Russell Defense Firm has a track record of showing what the police did wrong and how this violated the rights of innocent citizens.
