Options for those charged with drug crimes

Drug crimes are not just something that happens in the heart of big cities or sprawling suburbs, even small rural communities can have robust drug trades, bringing dangerous elements to country towns just as they exist in their big-city counterparts.

What does the 'fruit of the poisonous tree' mean?

Most people know that police can search a home or business if they have a search warrant. The process of obtaining such a warrant may not be as familiar.
