Do The Charges Fit The Drug Crime?

Prosecutors Sometimes Overcharge Drug Possession Cases

Being arrested for possessing a small amount of drugs should not ruin your life. But it can and it does when prosecutors file charges that do not fit the crime. When this happens, you can be facing felony drug charges, and a felony conviction can change the trajectory of your life.

That is why you need a relentless defense lawyer on your side when you are facing drug possession charges. At the Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner, we know how drug cases should be charged, and we challenge the prosecution when it goes too far.

We Examine Everything

Mr. Breiner is an attorney who makes the government prove every element of its case, ensuring that your rights are protected. He will scrutinize the facts behind the charges. He will study whether law enforcement used proper procedures when it gathered evidence. If there are flaws in the government's case, he will bring them to light.

The bottom line is: Mr. Breiner will work tirelessly to achieve a positive result in your case. This could be an acquittal, a dismissal of all or some of the charges or a plea agreement that is reached with the prosecutor.

Degrees Of Drug Possession Charges

Possession charges fall into two main categories:

  • Drug possession — Possession charges are the most common. The severity of the charge is based on the amount and type of drugs involved.
  • Drug possession with intent to distribute — Intent to distribute (sell) drugs is assumed when the accused possesses an amount that goes beyond personal use. If you are also found with large sums of money, the government often will conclude there was intent to sell and will charge you accordingly.
