Common Questions People Ask Me About Drug Charges

  • Did law enforcement need a search warrant to search you, your car, or your house?
  • Did the police have the right or probable cause to search you, your car or your home?
  • Did the police have the right to hold you until the K-9 unit arrived to conduct a dog sniff?
  • Are the dogs used in the sniff reliable and will the search hold up in court?
  • Was the search and seizure conducted in a timely manner?
  • Was the information forming the basis of the search stale information?
  • Did law enforcement need a search warrant to search you, your car, or your house?
  • Can the search warrant be thrown out of court?
  • Can the evidence against me be excluded, suppressed, or thrown out of court?

If the evidence is suppressed, can the prosecutor still go forward on my case?

Drug cases have many legal issues that can help you. It may be possible to file a Motion to Suppress in your case to have the evidence against you thrown out of court for one of the above reasons. A Motion to Suppress is a legal document requesting that evidence (the drugs) be thrown out in your case. If the motion is granted, your case could be dismissed.

There are other important issues as well:

  • Were the drugs (controlled substance) actually found on you?
  • Or, were the drugs not actually on you, but somewhere nearby, or found in a car or house you were in? This is called Constructive Possession and you may have legal defense to the drug charge.

How can the Drug Court Diversion Program help me?

This simple fact could mean the difference between Suppress your case being thrown out and keeping your record clean or you being put in prison or placed on probation. If the prosecutor can not prove that you were in actual or constructive possession of the contraband as required under Florida case law, your case may be dismissed by filing a Motion to Dismiss in your case. Having the drug charges against you dropped or the case dismissed would be the ideal situation.

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
