An LA criminal lawyer in any drug case will have to analyze various aspects of the arrest in order to make sure the police obeyed their protocol. For example, if the police do not read you Miranda Rights, if they do not tell you what you are being arrested for, if they use excessive force, if they do not allow you to call your attorney or any other act of negligence, your arrest may be null and void. However, only a skilled and experienced defense lawyer will possess the proper amount of knowledge to be able to give you the kind of legal advice necessary to spot such mistakes.
Mitch Mustain was arrested by police in Van Nuys and held on a felony narcotics charge according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Bail was set at $30,000, and he spent some time behind bars before finally being released. Mustain is 22 and was preparing for the upcoming NFL Draft on campus. He's only started one game at USC after being a standout at Arkansas and a highly recruited player out of high school. Specifically, Mustain was arrested on suspicion of selling prescription drugs in the San Fernando Valley. Such a charge could spell doom for the young quarterback, as NFL teams are often fearful of drafting a young prospect who has any history of legal troubles, especially if the player's upside talent is not significant. Some college players cost themselves millions of dollars by being arrested, because their draft stock fell. Players have been drafted in different rounds due to arrests, and some have cost themselves ten or fifteen million dollars just by dropping from the fifth spot to the fifteenth. These sorts of problems require a Attorney who understands the law and who can help.
