Possible Possession of Drugs/Narcotics Defenses
Drug possession cases are not always as simple as you might think. It is not enough for police to catch you with drugs; they also need to make sure the legal definition of possession was met. Possession can be actual (when drugs are found on your person), constructive (when drugs are found in an area you have control over), or joint (when it can be shown that you and another person possessed drugs together).
Preventing the prosecution from establishing that you really did possess the drugs is just one possible defense that we will explore as your drug possession attorney. We will also consider whether the facts of your case may support other arguments such as:
- There wasn’t enough of the drug to be used as a controlled substance
- You didn’t know the drugs were there
- You didn’t know the drugs were drugs
- The drugs were found during an illegal search
Relief for Non-Violent Offenders
Drug possession is one of the non-violent drug crimes that is eligible for California’s drug diversion programs. Drug diversion substitutes drug treatment for jail time and, if completed successfully, will prevent a drug possession conviction from appearing on your criminal record. The best way to figure out if you are eligible for drug diversion and which program you should choose is to contact an experienced drug defense lawyer.
