Drug possession charges are not always straightforward, and in fact can often be quite complex. For example, there are situations in which a New City resident could be wrongfully charged with drug possession even if he or she was not the possessor of the drugs found.
For example, if police find drugs in your home, automobile or workplace you could face charges of constructive possession, even if the drugs found were left by another person. It takes a strong defense strategy to prove the drugs were not yours.
Sometimes an individual is just in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you were with someone else who was charged with possessing drugs, you could also face presumptive possession charges. Again, this is a situation where you need to establish a solid defense argument.
An experienced criminal defense attorney can not only represent individuals accused of drug possession in court, but can explain how the law applies to the facts of their case. In addition, an attorney can look for weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. Moreover, if police seized drugs without a valid search warrant or violated other laws of criminal procedure, this could work out in the accused’s favor.
