Bucks County Drug Possession Lawyer
Drug possession can be a major offense. Many times, police in Bucks County will charge possession. This can be confusing, since many reports of decriminalization of certain drugs have surfaced. Make no mistake, in Bucks County, you can and will be charged with Drug Possession, even if it is a small amount.
Drug Possession Defined
Possession of any controlled substance is an ungraded misdemeanor. This includes marijuana, cocaine, and any Prescription Drug where you do not hold a valid prescription. Anytime someone possesses a drug, even if unintentionally, that person can be charged.
Any misdemeanor you are charged with can go a long way to ruining your life. Schools, employers, and others can search public records to see your record. This hampers your ability to get jobs and can cause significant embarrassment.
If you have been charged with Drug Possession, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.
What can police search?
Police can charge you for anything on your body (actual possession) or anything in an area you control (constructive possession) that they find in a search. An attorney can help challenge this search. In most cases, if a search resulting in a drug charge is thrown out due to something the police did wrong, the case is usually also thrown out.
It is important to have an attorney review how the police found the drugs. The attorney can ask whether the search was valid, whether the police had reasonable suspicion to stop you, and whether the search was done without your permission.
