Possession of a controlled substance is not necessarily a minor offense. When you are found to have an illegal substance in your possession, whether physically on your person, in your car or in another area that you have access to (e.g., a locker or your home), you may also find yourself investigated for drug distribution charges as well.
This is especially true if the amount of drugs in your possession is greater than what a law enforcement officer considers indicative of personal use only, or if you are found in possession of drug paraphernalia or items that could be viewed as supplies for distribution.
The circumstances surrounding a drug crime arrest will dictate what kind of charge you face. Whether we are working to prove the drugs in your possession did not belong to you or are fighting to reduce the charges you face to lesser criminal offenses, Bires Schaffer & DeBorde has the experience and skill necessary to defend you to the fullest extent possible.
