What defenses do I have to a drug possession charge?
There is truly nothing worse than being convicted of a crime you didn’t
commit. Sadly enough, this is often the case for drug possession offenses.
Many individuals are unaware that they were involved in a crime or that
there were any drugs on their person to begin with. Whatever your circumstances,
a strong defense is foundational the outcome of your case.
We may be able to utilize the following defense strategies:
- Lack of knowledge or awareness
- Use of prescription medicine
- Possession because of prior threats
We will take special care to meticulously research the evidence surrounding
your case. From witness interviews to assessing the police records, every
piece of information can be useful for our strategy. Illinois punishes
offenders harshly and penalties can include incarceration, restitution,
and fines. We are committed to proactively fighting these consequences
on your behalf.
