Drug Possession Penalties

State and Federal Drug Possession Charges

Drug possession may be charged as a first, second, or third-degree felony or misdemeanor. The penalty for drug possession may vary depending on which drug was in possession, and the amount possessed. Convictions for possession may also result in probation, suspension of your drivers’ license, ineligibility for some types of employment, and more.

Be sure to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney about the possible repercussions of your drug possession charge.

Defenses To Drug Possession

A Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help Defend Your Legal Rights

Your drug possession attorney can raise a number of legal defenses to defend your rights after a drug possession charge. Common defenses usually raised at the beginning of a case include illegal search or seize defense. This may mean that police searched for drugs without a warrant, or that they used unreasonable force in doing so.

It is important to explore all available defenses with your criminal defense attorney.

"He kept me informed, kept it real, and most importantly cared. He was always available by cell or at the office. When I was in jail he came to visit at least once every ten days. At first I thought he was too good to be true but in talking to some of his other clients he is the real deal."
