Car pulled over on I-95 and wrongfully searched? Now facing drug charges near St. George or Santee, South Carolina?
Criminal defense attorney Russell D. Hilton can help.
It happens to many drivers traveling between states on I-95.
The police stop you for something small – say, speeding or following a little too closely. The next thing you know, the officer requests to search, brings out the dog and finds something in your trunk.
Maybe it was just a small, recreational amount of marijuana, or maybe it was more. But before you know it, you’re being arrested and facing criminal charges like trafficking drugs, or unlawful carrying of a firearm.
Regardless of whether you’ve been wrongfully accused or truly “messed up,” you’re understandably terrified of what this could mean for your family and career. Drug charges carry serious penalties.
