Are There Defenses to Drug Possession Charges?

Unfortunately, prosecutors and judges come down hard on drug alleged crime offenders and oftentimes exacerbate a minor concern to something much larger. This generally means that what would generally be considered a minor offense is punished more harshly than it should be. Your rights and freedoms are too important to be taken from you by an overzealous prosecutor.

Thankfully there are defenses that can be used on your behalf:

  • Drug evidence was obtained through unlawful search and seizure
  • Drugs accused of being yours actually belong to someone else
  • Substance in your possession is not actually a controlled substance
  • Alleged drug evidence is missing and cannot be used in trial
  • Forced into drug possession over duress or coercion

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your arrest and detention, any kind of drug possession defenses can apply. The best way to learn about your rights is by speaking with a criminal lawyer experienced in the defense of drug crimes.

Rave Reviews from
Happy Clients

  • I felt very at ease with Mark representing me.

    “I am very pleased with the way in which Mark handled my case. I had a speeding ticket which was 29 miles over the speed limit. Mark was very prompt in returning my telephone call and explained what would happen once we got into court and also gave me very valuable information while at court and prior to going to court. I ended up receiving probation before judgment. My fine was reduced from $160 to $50 + $25.50 in court costs. I felt very at ease with Mark representing me and will definitely use him in the future. My family also wants his name and number for any future situations they may come across.”

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”

  • Phenomenal Lawyer that produces the best results for his clients. Worth every penny!

    “Mark Scheurman is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner in tough situations. He wants the best for his clients and produces great results. Under his representation, he always assured me that I was in good hands no matter how much I worried. He listened to me kept me well informed of my rights and options. Long story short I was given 13 citations by a cop after my car was crashed into the sidewalk even though I was not the driver. The citations alone were enough to revoke my license and included $1,300 worth of fines; furthermore, 2 of the citations carried a jail sentence up to 2 months each. I have never been in trouble before and never experienced any of this, but Mark handled everything. The day before court he called and told me he convinced the prosecutor to dismiss all13 citations because she did not have enough evidence to prove I was the driver and the only thing I had to was show up to court. Next thing I know, in court, the prosecutor dismissed every single citation as well as all the fines and I left with a clear record and not having to pay a penny. I'm so grateful for Mark because he really saved me from a bad situation that I was ready to plead guilty to even though I didn't do it because I was scared of the consequences if I didn't win. But he told me he would never let me plead guilty to something I didn't do and he handled it. He really is a blessing and I' m thankful for him and his representation. He knows the law and has a real passion for helping his clients. Thanks again Mark!!!!!! You are greatly appreciated.”
