Search and Seizure
The outcome of many Wake County drug cases hinges on the whether the search and seizure of the evidence (i.e. the drugs) was conducted properly by the police. The police or Sheriff’s Office are not allowed to search a person or property without the consent of the person searched, probable cause or a warrant. The drug charges lawyers at The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel, PLLC understand the many issues that surround search and seizure case law. If there is any factor that renders the search invalid, our lawyers will find it. They also negotiate with prosecutors to avoid jail time in favor of probation, drug treatment, or similar programs.
