How to Beat a Drug Possession Charge
We can argue a violation of 4th amendment rights if the police didn’t have a legitimate reason to search you, or your car or home where drugs were found. I will file a motion to suppress the evidence against you if this is the case.
There may be other ways to challenge the evidence against you. Can the police prove that the drugs were yours? I will force the prosecution to establish all elements of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
We may also be able to get the charges reduce in exchange for agreeing to a drug treatment program, or other terms.
How I will fight your case really depends on the exact facts of your situation. Please call me to talk about your charges, and I’ll let you know what I can do to help. There is no obligation for my consultation. Call (888) 452-4344 to find out what I can do to help.
