Wellborn has gained a penetrating understanding of the issues involved in South Carolina drug crimes, and relies on his extensive experience and attention to detail when representing a client. Before deciding on an appropriate legal course of action, he conducts an in-depth analysis of the circumstances surrounding a drug arrest such as:
Did the officer get your consent to search your vehicle or house?
Did the officer have reasonable suspicion of criminal activity to pull over your car?
Did the officer have probable cause, or a warrant, to search your home?
Were you frisked by the officer?
Did the officer read you your Miranda rights?
Who owned the car or house you were in?
Did the officer perform an illegal search and seizure?
Even if you are not acquitted, there may be options available to you that do not involve jail time. Depending on the nature of your case, you may be entitled to apply for a pre-trial intervention program (PTI) which can clear your record of any drug offenses after the completion of fee payments, counseling, and community service.
You could also receive a conditional discharge, which withholds your sentence in order to determine if an addiction exists that requires a drug rehabilitation program. If you pass the screening and enter into counseling, your record could be cleared.
It is important to speak with an experienced drug crime defense lawyer to determine which legal options are available for your particular situation. Contact us for a free initial consultation.
