Drug Possession Defenses in CA
For some defendants involved in a drug case, it might seem that their charges are so minor, or so clearly a case of mistaken identity, that there is no need for a legal representative to step in. However, courts and juries tend to have an automatic bias against defendants, even in cases where drugs might have been planted on your person or accidentally placed in your possession. It is crucial to have a skilled team of Newport Beach drug possession attorneys to help prepare a powerful defense.
Some of the most effective defenses could demonstrate that:
- The drugs on your person or in your property did not belong to you
- You were unaware that the drugs had been placed in your possession
- When you or your property were being searched, the search was carried out in an illegal manner
- The supposed evidence was actually falsified by the police
California Drug Possession Laws
Being accused of having an illegal or controlled substance on your person is a very serious affair. Many people do not know that most cases of drug possession are designated as felonies, at least within Californian borders. There are certain charges which may be classified as misdemeanors, such as possession of marijuana; possessing drug paraphernalia, such as pipes; or simply being under the influence of controlled substances. Even these accusations could have a greatly negative impact on your record.
Avoiding Harsh Penalties Through Experienced Support
As for the possession of any other type of controlled substance, whether meth, cocaine, heroin, or certain prescription drugs, if you are found with these on your person or property, you will be convicted for a felony. In California, drug felonies are especially serious, often mandating prison time. If you have one of our knowledgeable lawyers from the Law Offices of Randy Collins on your side, however, you could receive an alternative consequence which is much safer and less harmful to your overall well-being. Attending a drug court or drug treatment program, where you will receive counselling or treatment, are far preferred to time spent in prison.
