Marijuana Possession And Other Possession Charges

Though a drug possession charge may sound minor, not all possession charges are a misdemeanor. Also, all charges can result in a mark on your criminal record. Regardless of the situation, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who can advise you of your rights and options. Contact us at the Law Office of Erik P. Kaeding in Kent today to discuss your case.

Challenging Your Possession Charges

One of the ways that our drug defense lawyer, Erik Kaeding, often handles possession cases is to aggressively challenge the charges that our client is facing. Just because the marijuana, cocaine, meth, other drug or paraphernalia was in your home, car or anywhere near you does not automatically mean it is yours and in your possession. Law enforcement officials may press you to admit the drug is yours, but do not say anything without an attorney present. Ultimately it is up to the prosecution to prove that the drugs or paraphernalia were yours. If any other individual had access to your car or home, or was with you when you were searched, it may be possible to argue that you were not in possession of the alleged substances or materials.

Consequences For Conviction On A Drug Possession Charge

The consequences for a drug possession conviction depend on the type of drug and amount of drug in question. The more of the drug that was allegedly in your possession, the more severe the punishments. Our firm handles drug possession cases involving any drug, such as:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine or crack
  • Methamphetamines (meth or crystal meth)
  • Prescription drugs
