Hull Drug Lawyer

Drug Crimes in Hull are common, as the police constantly patrol the town and monitor the beaches. After being arrested and charged with a drug crime, whether it is possession, possession with the intent to distribute, or a trafficking charge, it is important that you understand the defenses available to your case. At DelSignore Law, we have experienced lawyers who have fought drug charges in courts across Massachusetts, including the Hingham District Court where your case will be heard.

There are a Number Of Defenses that you can use to Help Win Your Case:

1. LACK OF POSSESSION: We can attempt to show, in court, that the drugs were not actually yours. This is a common defense when there was more than one person involved in the drug arrest. If you were at the beach with a group of people are the police found drugs on you, it is very possible that we could make a successful argument that the drugs were not yours.

2. THERE WAS A VIOLATION OF YOUR RIGHTS DURING THE INTERACTION WITH THE POLICE: Police are required to read you your Miranda rights after being arrested. However, police sometimes forget to or there is a lapse from the time you were taken into custody to when you were read your rights. You may have made incriminating statements which led to your arrest, but we can work to have these excluded from evidence which will minimize the state’s case against you.

3. PROOF OF KNOWLEDGE OR INTENT: The state has the burden to prove that you knew you had the drugs on you at the time of your arrest. However, this is not an easy task for them to accomplish. We will work to make sure that it is difficult, if not impossible, to prove that you had actual knowledge of the drugs you allegedly possessed.

Do The Police Have The Right To Search My Car For Drugs After Pulling Me Over?

In Massachusetts, the police do not have the authority to order you out of your car if they pulled you over for a traffic infraction. Basically, if the officer issues you a citation for a traffic infraction, and has no further evidence to believe you would be involved in criminal activity, the officer cannot legally search your car.

If the officer has fear for his or her own safety, or has reason to believe you are involved in criminal activity at the time of the stop and that you might have evidence of the criminal activity in your vehicle, legally, the officer can order you out of the car and subsequently conduct a search.

Your vehicle is protected by the Fourth Ammendment, but because your car is mobile, there is a lesser expectation of privacy. Searches of a vehicle fall under what is known as the automobile exception to the warrant requirement. Since automobiles are mobile, there is a lesser expectation of privacy; however, a car is still protected under the Fourth Amendment meaning that a police officer can search your car only if he or she has justification to do so.

Client Reviews
Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him Ashwani
A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott
Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David

I cannot express the gratitude towards Michael for his amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael over and over again. Claire
