Greenville Drug Possession Attorney

Possession is a drug crime that involves having illegal narcotics or unlawfully obtained prescription drugs in one's possession. This may mean that they are on your person, in your vehicle or on your property. Depending on the type of drug and the amount, a defendant in Greenville, North Carolina may face serious penalties for drug possession. Involving an attorney is an important preventative measure to take to protect your future.

Enhanced Penalties for Drug Possession

In some situations, a defendant may find that he or she is facing drug trafficking charges as the result of possession of a large amount of a controlled substance. For example, possession of 10 or more pounds of marijuana will result in trafficking charges rather than simple possession, leaving the defendant to face a minimum of 25 to 30 months in prison and a fine of up to $5,000. The presence of certain drug paraphernalia may also result in a defendant facing possession for sale or distribution charges, which are more serious than simple drug possession charges. Baggies, measuring scales, large amounts of cash and client lists are examples of circumstantial evidence that a prosecutor may use in an attempt to secure a conviction for possession with intent.

Greenville drug possession charges are based primarily upon the drug evidence discovered and seized by law enforcement. For this reason, an important part of the legal counsel that your attorney provides will be to review every single aspect of the search and seizure that led to this drug evidence being used against you. If your lawyer discovers that the search was performed illegally or that evidence was mishandled, this may be grounds to suppress that evidence so it cannot be used directly against you.
