If you live in Vernon BC, the Okanagan, or anywhere else for that matter and you have been charged with a criminal drug offence call defense lawyer Julian van der Walle immediately. He will obtain the best result possible in your case.
Julian van der Walle has extensive knowledge of the law in the area of controlled drug and substances. He has achieved acquittals in all types of drug cases including production of marijuana, trafficking cocaine, and possession for the purposes of trafficking.
There are generally two types of defences in drug cases. First, can the prosecution prove that you had control and knowledge of the drugs? If you are in a vehicle that is not owned by you and the police have no evidence to say how long you have been driving the vehicle it is unlikely that they will be able to prove you had knowledge of the drugs. It is important that you do not admit to police that you know about the drugs! Whenever you deal with police it is important that you keep your mouth shut. Tell them your name and nothing else. Your silence can never be used against you.
The second type of defense to drug charges is whether or not the search that discovered the drugs was legal. If it wasn’t then there is a good chance that Julian can convince the judge to exclude the evidence on the basis that the police violated your constitutional rights.
