Drug Offense

How prosecutors for the government treat a case often depends on how they view the defendant. Prosecutors and courts will treat individuals much differently if a defendant is alleged to have been distributing or selling drugs, rather than simply possessing a substance for personal use. As with other criminal offenses, these charges can have serious immigration consequences.

The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives everyone the right to be free from illegal search and seizures by the government.

Being found with drugs does not necessarily mean the search was conducted in a legal manner.
