Most people believe that in order to be charged with drug possession police officers must find you with any illegal drug on your person. However, this is not quite accurate since there are specific cases when you may face drug possession charges without actually being in physical possession of the drug.
Drug possession charges also allow prosecutors to add on specific charge enhancements such as possession in a no-drug zone, possession in the presence of a minor, and possession with intent to distribute.
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your drug possession arrest, you need an aggressive defense attorney who will protect your rights. Contact the Law Office of Nicholas J. Muscarello at (985) 345-1010 if you are facing drug possession charges and let us help mount your defense.
