Important questions in Kansas drug cases

Drug cases in Kansas can stem from accusations of drug possession or drug trafficking, and there are some very important questions that those who have been accused of such crimes need to address as the cases move forward. The answers to these questions can help them as they form a legal defense strategy.

In drug possession cases, it starts with simply asking if you had only drugs alone or if you also had drug paraphernalia. After that, the quantity of the drugs must be addressed, if they were in your possession. Regardless of what you did or did not have on you, though, one of the biggest questions is whether or not the police really had a right to search you for the drugs in the first place.

For drug trafficking cases, it begins with simply addressing what type of drugs you have been accused of moving from one location to another. Along with the type, the amount must be considered; this is often important when looking at what type of intent the police are assuming you had, whether it was an intent to sell or simply an intent to use the drugs yourself. Finally, there is the question of whether or not you knew that the drugs were there; people have been accused of trafficking in the past when they did not know that drugs were in their vehicles, for instance.

As you can see, even if you admit to the charges, there are many things that must be addressed to determine what type of sentence you get; some of these questions can also help you fight charges if you know you are innocent.
