Building a Defense Against Drug Possession
California has a number of laws that make a variety of drugs illegal to possess. With nearly two decades of legal experience, our Orange County criminal defense attorney knows how to handle tough drug possession cases. We can work closely with you to build a strong and strategic defense. Our main goal is to secure a favorable outcome for your case.
We can do this by utilizing the following defenses:
- Proving that an illegal search and seizure took place
- Demonstrating that you were not in “control”, not in actual possession or were not aware of the drugs
- Pointing out that your friend/acquaintance left the drugs in your household or vehicle without your knowledge
- You didn’t realize that prescription drugs were concerned controlled substances
For example, say you are in the car with several friends and are headed to a party. You may not know it, but one of your friends is in possession of ecstasy. Maybe they even told you they had the ecstasy or MDMA once you were in the car, but there was no exchange of the drugs and the friend remain in sole possession of them. If a police officer pulls your friend over and finds the ecstasy, he may try to charge all of you with possession.
Maybe it is even simpler than that: your girlfriend left her prescription pain medication in your car. You don’t notice them and head out to work the next day. An officer pulls you over for speeding and sees the drug bottle in your console. They ask about it, and you don’t remember that they are your girlfriend’s and say that you aren’t sure where they came from. Since you say they aren’t yours and you can’t provide a convincing answer for the police officer, they arrest you for illegal drug possession, despite your attempt to explain the misunderstanding.In this situation, an attorney can help you fight your charges and protect your reputation.
