Drug charges here in Kentucky are heavily based upon the circumstances surrounding the arrest and the information provided by the defendant themselves during questioning. This is why it is important for anyone suspected of or charged with a crime to calmly, respectfully and yet firmly decline to talk to the sheriffs, investigators or police and contact John Schmidt or call us today at (502) 509-1490 for a free consultation and start to get the answers you need as well as the protections of sound legal advice and counsel. You have the right to remain silent.
There are many successful strategies for aggressively defending drug charges and allegations of drug crimes such as drug possession, drug trafficking or drug distribution. For example, when we prove you did not know someone had placed drugs in a coat pocket or in your backpack possession charges cannot hold up. Police officers, lab technicians and other investigators must follow specific rules regarding evidence. Labs must be able to prove the substances were actually dangerous drugs. Law enforcement personnel make mistakes, and samples are contaminated and lost. Just because you had some “criminal tools” in your possession such as money, baggies or scales doesn’t automatically prove your intent to sell or distribute.
John Schmidt challenges the evidence and how it was collected, the actions of police and law enforcement professionals and interrogators, prosecution theories and all aspects of intent while aggressively defending drug charges in Shepherdsville, Bullitt County and surrounding criminal courts. John has the courtroom experience, legal skill and experience with local prosecutors to successfully defend Kentucky drug crimes.
