Defense Against Border Stop Drug Charges
You were stopped at the border. You were checked to make certain that you weren’t transporting an illegal immigrant or engaging in the transportation of illegal immigrants. In the meantime, the border patrol brought out the drug sniffing dogs. They searched your vehicle. They said they found drugs. You were charged with a drug crime.
At the Law Offices of Phil Hineman, P.C., we know how to defend against drug charges issued at border patrol checkpoints in Wellton (on Interstate 8) and elsewhere in Arizona. These are challenging cases, but with more than 28 years of experience on our side, we can get results.
They Have the Right to Stop You
The intention of border patrol checkpoints is to prevent illegal immigration. The United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and the border patrol have been granted this right. They also have the right to check for other criminal activity, primarily drug crimes. They constitutionally have the right to make this stop, to use drug sniffing dogs and to charge people that they believe to be in possession of or transporting marijuana, cocaine or any other illegal substance.
You Have the Right to Fight Back
Even if it seems that the odds are stacked against you, an experienced attorney can help you fight the charges you are faced with.
