Developing a defense strategy for drug trafficking; part 2

In my last entry, we looked at the often overlooked aspect of jurisdiction to develop a defense strategy against drug trafficking.  This entry will look at the other aspects of developing a defense strategy including cooperation with the government; search and seizure, and the entrapment defense.

Developing a defense strategy for drug trafficking; jurisdiction

In order to develop a defense strategy when charged with drug trafficking, several factors need to be assessed.  The first step to determine your strategy deals with jurisdiction.  Jurisdiction is crucial and is often overlooked by defense attorneys.  Are you in federal court?  Or are you in state court?  If you are in state court, which county and/or judicial district are you in?  If you have already been charged, is there a possibility to transfer your case to another jurisdiction?
