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.

    “One to describe Mark's representation was AWESOME! Being a first time offender for driving while under a suspended drivers license Mark gave me more than enough assurance that everything was going to be okay. I was so nervous about going to court. When I reached the court room Mark had already settled everything with the states attorney office. Having my case dismissed! I am truly impressed by Mark's professionalism. He was very knowledgeable also educated me throughout the entire process. I am so thankful Mark represented me. He showed me why it is important to have a lawyer represent you. When you could be facing some maximum penalties including jail time. I will be sure to spread his good work.”

  • 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.”

  • "Quick on his feet"

    “Mark represented my son in traffic court and then at an MVA hearing. Prior to my sons name being called at traffic court, he asked to speak to the State Trooper outside the court room, and struck a deal right then and there. He was both professional and very knowledgeable about MVA laws. Both instances we had very good outcomes. Hopefully, this will be the last time we need him, however, I highly recommend Mark!!!!”
