If it feels like no one is listening, speak up, don't give up

If you are charged with a drug offense in Florida, it can seem like no one is listening to you. The police arresting you, the officers at the jail where you are being held, prosecutors and even your family members might seem to tune out what you are saying and just believe what they believe.

This can be enormously frustrating, especially because in the U.S., people have the right to defend themselves against criminal accusations and tell their side of the story. But when it seems like no one is listening, you can feel like your side of the story just doesn't matter. This can be an unfortunate and costly assumption to make.

Your story matters, even when it doesn't seem like it. Law enforcement officers, prosecutors, counselors and your family may feel like they've heard all your explanations before, whether you've been in this situation before or not, and people may hold the belief that if you are charged with drug possession, drug use or drug manufacturing, you are guilty and cannot be trusted.

We know that this is enormously upsetting. Being ignored or dismissed can make you feel powerless and hopeless. But you do have the right to speak up and defend yourself. You may just need some help in doing so effectively, and this is why an attorney can be crucial.

When it comes to defending against criminal charges, yelling at everyone might not be the best way to get your voice heard. You may need to take a different approach. This could mean aggressively restating your message, engaging in negotiation and a discussion or even staying silent, depending on the circumstances.

In order to tell your side of the story and gain an understanding of how you may be able to present it, you can discuss your case with a criminal defense lawyer who can listen and help you identify your options.
