Navigating a drug possession charge in New York

Facing criminal allegations often involves confronting the potential for serious penalties as well as life-impacting consequences. Our law firm understands that being charged with a drug crime can not only carry the potential for serious penalties for New York defendants, but could also cause the accused to endure a damaged personal and professional reputation. In order to initiate a defense and understand the best legal strategy, it is important to analyze all possible defense routes that could lead to reduced or dismissed charges.

A drug possession charge is considered a serious allegation and one that should not be taken lightly. The details and circumstances around the arrest are crucial to the defense, so it is important to initiate a defense immediately so no details are lost.

When it comes to drug possession charges, details such as the alleged type and amount of drugs involved are crucial in determining the potential penalties the defendant could face. Furthermore, if this is the defendant's first possession charge, they could face less harsh penalties than if it were their second or third.

Lastly, understanding the steps involved in the search and seizure that led to their arrest is paramount. If officers did not properly conduct these steps, missed a step, or failed to uphold the rights of the defendant, damaging evidence may be deemed inadmissible. This could ultimately lead to reduced or dropped charges.

Navigating the legal process can be challenging for an individual who faces criminal allegations. This is especially true if it is the accused's first charge. No matter what the defendant's past criminal record looks like, all defendants are afforded the right to a defense. Our firm's overview of drug possession charges could help accused individuals initiate a strong defense ensure their rights are both protected and preserved.
