At The Dodd Law Office, we can be instrumental in minimizing the fallout associated with an arrest for drug possession, distribution, manufacture, or trafficking and in helping you stay out of jail.

Alabama Drug Crimes Lawyer
Prosecutors in criminal cases involving drug crimes often use seized contraband as evidence. Although the physical presence of such evidence may be difficult for a defendant to refute, the prosecutor is tasked with proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the drugs in question belonged to the defendant and that the defendant was in control of them at the time of their arrest. In other words, merely because drugs were found on or near your person by an arresting officer isn’t sufficient to secure your conviction: prosecutors need to demonstrate that they were yours. Don’t be intimidated into a false confession simply because authorities are in possession of contraband they claim belonged to you.
