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:

  • Insanity
  • Entrapment
  • Use of prescription medicine
  • Lack of knowledge or awareness
  • 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.
