What’s at Stake When You Face a Michigan Drug Possession Charge
If you are found to be in possession of cocaine, heroin, meth, or another illegal drug in Michigan (excluding marijuana), you could face this felony charge.
The burden is with the prosecution to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that a person had knowledge or should have reasonably had knowledge that drugs were in their possession. This is not always an easy task, and is often an area of defense, that can lead to a dismissal of the drug charges. Below are some common defenses our criminal defense lawyers in metro Detroit area and surrounding counties used to challenge drug possession charges depending on circumstances of your case:
Lack of; or insufficient evidence;
Unlawful search and seizure;
Violations in police procedure or protocol;
You did not know the drugs were in your possession;
Common areas are shared by others in the residence where you live;
You did not know drugs were in the back of a borrowed vehicle;
You did not know that a passenger in your vehicle possessed illegal drugs;
Other constitutional rights violations
Our Criminal Justice system is both frightening and confusing. It's not a system that you ever want to face unprepared.
If you, or a family member, end up facing a judge or jury, the evidence must show beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed a crime.
The biggest mistake made by people under arrest is talking to the cops without a lawyer present. Our criminal defense lawyers are available 24/7 — and we offer a free initial consultation
