Don't Let Drug Charges Undermine Your Civil Rights

Drug crimes are an increasingly significant issue for residents of South Dakota. Even relatively minor charges can have an adverse impact on your ability to secure housing and employment, and a felony conviction can have life-changing implications such as years in prison.

Winter Law OfficeState and federal authorities have incentives to enforce drug laws zealously, and sometimes they overstep their bounds. Law enforcement officers may cut corners and violate their agencies' procedures for a variety of reasons, resulting in illegal searches and seizures that may violate rights guaranteed under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

No one has the right to deprive you of your civil rights. At Winter Law Office, P.C., we will review the details of your case and design a legal strategy tailored to your needs. One of our first steps is to confirm that law enforcement officers followed proper procedures during the incident that led to the criminal charges against you.

A Strong Defense Against Drug Charges Throughout South Dakota

We represent clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges stemming from the alleged possession, sale and production of a wide range of controlled substances, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Opiates and other prescription medications
  • Heroin

Meth, in particular, has affected many South Dakotans. We have successfully represented clients affected by the addiction epidemic, often in the rural areas throughout the state. We have also defended those charged with trafficking the drug from one state to another along the I-90 corridor and other routes. Whether you have been unfairly charged or knowingly took a risk and got caught, we will provide a strong defense designed to minimize the criminal justice system's impact on your life. When possible, we will seek to have charges dropped. When that is not an option, we will seek reduced charges or a reduced sentence in exchange for cooperation with law enforcement and prosecutors.

Drug charges do not have to mean jail time. By working with an experienced lawyer, you have a higher chance of achieving a positive legal outcome.
