Defending a Cocaine Possession Charge
Police can and do make procedural mistakes when making drug busts. In some cases, they may not have had reasonable suspicion to stop your vehicle or probable cause to arrest you. They may not have conducted their investigation in accordance with the law or informed you of your constitutional rights. These or other factors could lead to the dismissal of the charge or another positive outcome for you.
We will investigate all aspects of your case, asking questions such as:
- Is the substance really cocaine?
- Did the weight of the substance found in your possession actually match the weight listed in the complaint?
- Were the drugs actually under your control or under the control of another person?
- Did the police violate your rights when making the investigation and arresting you?
Applebaum & Associates will work diligently to build a strong and effective defense for you.
