Did you know that the drug charges pending against you may have been the result of an illegal traffic stop, an improper search or a warrantless seizure?
At Coots, Henke & Wheeler, we have been defending the constitutional rights of our clients against drug charges for over four decades. During that time, our lawyers have acquired extensive knowledge of the law and considerable skill in handling these cases. Our criminal defense practice is headed by attorney James D. Crum, who is an experienced trial advocate.
We represent clients throughout Hamilton County, Indianapolis and central Indiana. We can provide experienced criminal defense against charges such as:
- Drug possession
- Drug dealing
- Drug trafficking/transportation
- Drug manufacturing
- Visiting or maintaining a common nuisance
The types of drugs involved in these cases include marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, prescription drugs and even trace amounts found on the paraphernalia associated with these controlled substances.
Regardless of the charge or the type of controlled substance involved, drug cases often involve a number of constitutional issues and violations of our clients’ rights. Drug charges can often be challenged for reasons of probable cause, illegal search and seizure, and the credibility of drug task force confidential informants. Jim Crum has extensive experience in arguing motions to suppress and can handle most any case.
These are not mere technicalities, and, in fact, these laws and rights are in place solely to protect all of us. In that light, we make no apologies for holding the police and prosecutors to the same laws and standards we hold ourselves to.
