Defending yourself against cocaine charges in South Dakota

Cocaine is illegal to possess, sell and traffic in all states. However, the penalties to which an offender will be subject depends on the state that they were in at the time. In South Dakota, the severity of the penalties for cocaine possession, sale or trafficking depends on the amount of cocaine involved.

Are you aware of these DUI defenses?

If you have recently been charged with a DUI, this likely occurred after you were pulled over by law enforcement officials and asked to perform a Breathalyzer test. If this was the case, you must take swift action to adequately defend yourself. Failing to do so could mean that you will lose your driver's license, pay significant fines and perhaps even face jail time.

Do you know the weaknesses of Breathalyzer tests?

Failing a Breathalyzer test is a frustrating, often frightening experience. In the moment, many people feel as though they are headed straight for a drunk driving conviction and there is nothing they can do about it. Drunk driving arrests are all different, so there is no one-size-fits-all defense that can protect all defendants, but building a strong legal defense after receiving charges is always better than failing to prepare any defense at all.
