These Cases Demand Aggressive Defense
Texas has some of the harshest laws in country for drug distribution crimes.
Law enforcement officers and prosecutors are under tremendous pressure
from the community to "get drug dealers off the streets." Unfortunately,
this at times leads to poor decision making by law enforcement. Many times
they decide to arrest everyone in a car or house where they believe narcotics
sales to be occurring. This often includes individuals who may be guilty,
but also innocent people who had no idea drugs were even present. Even
first time offenders may be singled out for long prison sentences.
Many drug task forces are models of professionalism and quality investigations.
Unfortunately, many others are undertrained and do not use adequate procedures
to ensure good investigations. This results in the arrest of innocent
people. Recently in the city of Tulia, Texas, a renegade undercover officer
framed many innocent citizens. Worse yet, even when problems with the
cases became apparent, the local district attorney proceeded and sent
many innocent people to prison. It took years for them to be released.
To protect yourself, you need quality legal counsel. Our co-founding partner,
Larry Bloomquist, has tried multiple serious drug delivery cases to juries
in San Antonio. In his years as a prosecutor, he frequently assisted and
advised law enforcement departments in obtaining search warrants or conducting
warrantless searches for narcotics. Larry Bloomquist and Cathy Compton are
Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization meaning you receive expert counsel.
