Man found with the drug Khat during traffic stop

When law enforcement in Upstate New York sees a vehicle that has committed traffic violations, a traffic stop will be made. As they investigate, it is not uncommon that the officers will see a driver or others in the vehicle who are behaving suspiciously or there is a smell of drugs coming from the vehicle. This will spark a search. If drugs are found, an arrest will be made. Although these allegations can be serious depending on the drugs that were allegedly found, the amount and other circumstances, there are still avenues of defense that can be effective and a law firm that is experienced in providing drug defense can help.

When arrested on these charges, no matter the circumstances under which the arrest was made, it is imperative to understand the severity of the charges and plan a strong legal defense.

It is a common question as to how law enforcement and prosecutors can prove who the drugs belonged to. Many will think that this is a viable strategy for defense.

This is key for those who are arrested as part of a drug investigation and charged with possession.

Or they could have a smaller amount that could be viewed as for personal use. The amount can be a vital difference when the charges are filed. Regardless of the circumstances, those who are arrested for drug possession and related crimes must make certain they put the pieces in place for a strong defense in the immediate aftermath.
