Being busted with drugs is a big deal – and if it’s happened to you, whether you were caught with pot or another controlled substance, you might need to talk to a Milwaukee drug crime defense lawyer as soon as possible.
What Not to Do if You’re Busted With Drugs in Milwaukee
If you’re caught with drugs, don’t try to prove your innocence to the police or investigators who are putting together a case against you. Even if you are completely innocent, you could end up saying something that jeopardizes your case and makes things harder on you. (Sometimes police will tell you that if you admit guilt, the judge will go easier on you because you’re being cooperative. Remember that police have no say in what the judge does or does not do.)
3 Things to Do After You’re Caught With Drugs
First things first: Get in touch with a Milwaukee drug crime defense lawyer who understands Wisconsin’s drug laws and how they’ll impact your case. All you have to tell police is that you want to talk to an attorney. You don’t have to answer their questions, whether you’re innocent or guilty.
Second, be extremely honest with your lawyer. He or she will have some important questions for you, including what happened during your arrest, what led up to your arrest, and what type of evidence the prosecution may have against you.
Third, prepare yourself for court. Make sure that you know what to expect (your lawyer will explain everything to you) – and if you’re not sure about something, ask! Your lawyer’s job is to help you get the best possible outcome in court and to answer your questions every step of the way.
