Drug Sales Attorney in Seattle
In many cases, the outcome of a drug sales charge hangs on evidence that points to intent to sell. Such evidence would include the amount of drugs found and any money or drug paraphernalia. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will challenge this sort of evidence and also how it was collected during the arrest, looking for any area where constitutional law was violated. Evidence that was seized during an illegal arrest can be suppressed, which means that the prosecuting attorney cannot use it.
