Ways to fight drug offenses:

  • A motion to suppress:
    most of the time the officer had to stop you and/or search you, depending upon why they did that there could be a motion to suppress.
  • Fight the possession element:
    if there are a bunch of people in the car with drugs, we can try to prove that someone else possessed the drugs (or at least that you did not), if you didn’t possess the drugs, you cannot be found guilty​
  • Intent to sell/trafficking cases: 
    ​sometimes we can argue you weren’t going to sell the drugs or otherwise often times these cases are ripe for an entrapment defense – basically the police or their informant made you do it.  These cases can be incredibly difficult to prove, and require a very experienced defense attorney.


DRUG OFFENSES

Things to know about drug cases:


  • The State has to prove Possession: This can be actual or constructive
    Actual – on or about your persons – it is in your pockets, in your hand, on your lap, etc
    Constructive – not on you, but state has to link it to you – in the car without anyone else, by you
  • Type of Drug:
    For Marijuana the state can just have the officer testify it was pot based upon their training and experience.  For all other drugs they have to have an expert test the drugs and confirm it was them.

  • Confidential Informants:
    often times the State will let someone else get lower charges if they set other people up with drugs.  In these cases there are motions to file to get the info on the informants as well as the potential to use an entrapment defense (basically they made me have the drugs/buy the drugs/sell the drugs).
  • Enhancements:
    the state can prove a more serious offense if they can show the items were possessed with the intent to sell (the state will try to use the fact that there were a lot of drugs, that they were in many different baggies, etc), or that there were large amounts (for trafficking cases).  For proving a certain amount it must be weighed by an expert, but for things like pills it is the entire weight of the pill, not just the weight of the drug in the pill.
