Collecting Drug Crime Evidence
Law enforcement officials tend to fight more aggressively in drug crime cases as opposed to other types of cases. Therefore, it is critical to pay attention to what law enforcement is doing to gather evidence against you.
Many times, law enforcement oversteps their boundaries while trying to obtain evidence. If law enforcement violates state or federal law, they risk having the case thrown out.

Brent Mayr: The thing with drug cases is, in that area of the law you find law enforcement is very aggressive. You find that law enforcement is pushing really hard to gather evidence against suspected individuals in those types of cases. In any type of drug case, we particularly need to pay close attention as to what law enforcement is doing to gather that evidence. Are they violating a person’s right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures? Are federal statutes regarding wire taps, are they being followed properly?
That’s really what you’re going to find most with the drug cases is you need someone that knows the law on what law enforcement can and cannot do, because many times law enforcement oversteps their boundaries. It doesn’t matter how much drugs or what the purpose of having the drugs is. If law enforcement violates state or federal law in gathering that evidence, they risk having their entire case thrown out. I’m there to find where did law enforcement mes sup, where did law enforcement violate this person’s rights. That’s particularly what we’re going to be looking for in any type of drug case.
