Drug CrimesThe criminal defense attorneys at Odom & Davis have over 35 years of experience handling federal drug related cases
The federal government has enacted laws that prohibit manufacturing, distributing, or possessing with intent to manufacture any of the listed drugs on the Controlled Substance Schedules. The Controlled Substance Schedule rates substances from schedule I to schedule V, with schedule I carrying the harshest penalties. A substance is considered to be schedule I if it has a high potential for abuse, no current medicinal use, and there is no accepted safety for use of the substance under medical supervision. Methamphetamine is an example of a schedule I substance.
Most drug cases in our criminal justice system end up in State courts as simple possession or possession with intent to deliver. However, certain operations get large enough to warrant attention from the federal government under federal drug laws. Once the federal government has become involved, the case gets much more serious as you are subject to harsher penalties and a more rock solid investigation. It is imperative that you hire an experienced federal drug crimes attorney the moment that you are being investigated to make sure that you get the proper result in your case.
The criminal defense attorneys at Odom & Davis have handled numerous drug cases in federal and state courts. We have gone to trial with success on many of those cases, and worked out deals with the government in others.

The Federal Drug Crime Lawyers at Odom & Davis will fight to insure that you receive the best result possible for the facts in your case.
4th Amendment Rights
Most drug possession cases involve a search and/or seizure of the defendant. The 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees that no person shall be subject to unreasonable searches or seizures at the hands of the government. Often, the way that the drugs were obtained is at issue in a drug possession case based on case law surrounding the 4th Amendment. A successful challenge to the search or seizure in your case can lead to the drugs being inadmissible at trial, and ultimately a dismissal in your case. You need an experienced Federal Drug Crime Attorney to challenge the way in which the government obtained the drugs in your case.
