If you have been arrested for possession of drugs you can face aggressive prosecution. Depending upon the type of drug involved and the amount allegedly found in your possession you could be convicted and suffer harsh penalties. If you have been arrested for simple possession of meth or cocaine don’t think that the “simple” means you will get off with just a slap on the wrist. If more than a minute amount of the drug is involved you may find you are facing a charge of possession with intent. Regardless of the circumstances, it is vital that you consult a San Francisco criminal defense lawyer to ensure your rights are fully protected.
The prosecution must prove that you had the drug in your possession and that you knew the drug was in your possession in order to gain a conviction. Police and sheriff officers in their eagerness to locate evidence sometimes violate the law concerning having good cause to conduct a search and seizure. Even though a prosecutor doesn’t have sufficient evidence to gain a conviction or the search was illegal, he or she is not going to let you know this. You will need a defense lawyer to investigate and determine the actual strength of the prosecution’s case. You can count on a drug possession defense attorney at the law firm of Okabe & Haushalter to investigate for grounds to take immediate action to get the charges reduced or dropped.
