Michigan father and son face drug charges

Whether you live in Michigan or elsewhere, people make mistakes. But sometimes those mistakes can leave someone facing dire consequences.

When someone in Michigan is accused of committing a drug crime, it is best to begin working on a strong criminal defense. It is often wise to rely on the expertise of a criminal defense attorney. An attorney will have a vast knowledge of the relevant laws. They will work hard to protect an individual's rights while working towards a favorable outcome.

A Michigan father and son are likely working on a legal defense after they were charged with various drug crimes. According to reports, authorities executed a search warrant at their home and allegedly found close to a pound of marijuana. They also claim to have found morphine, drug paraphernalia, cash and firearms.

The father, a 52-year-old man, faces two counts of drug possession charges along with a charge for maintaining a drug house and possession of a firearm.

His son, a 28-year-old man, also faces drug and firearm possession charges.

In cases like this one, an attorney will likely analyze the evidence in the case to be sure law enforcement executed the search warrant lawfully. Although law enforcement officers promise to serve and protect the public, there may be instances in which they overuse their power.

Although it is easy for the public to assume those accused with a crime are guilty, it is important to remember that everyone who is charged with a crime remains innocent unless they are proven guilty. People have the right to a fair trial and the right to a strong criminal defense.
