Your life can go down the drain really quickly if you’re convicted of drug crime.

Drug possession convictions come with a slew of legal penalties, such as jail or prison, fines, and probation.

An Arlington drug possession lawyer can help you avoid all of these negative effects.

Defenses Against Drug Possession Charges in Arlington

Many people are arrested for drug crimes they didn’t commit, and there is often an explanation as to how the drugs came to be in their possession.

For example: You bought a car from a friend, and there were drugs left inside the vehicle that you didn’t know about. You were stopped for a traffic violation, and the officer found the drugs and charged you with a crime.

Can the prosecutor prove those drugs were yours? That’s what the case may come down to.

Some of the defenses that may apply to your Arlington drug possession case could include the following:

  • The drugs weren’t yours to begin with.
  • You’re being set up.
  • You’re a victim of entrapment.
  • The police violated your rights or made procedural mistakes.
  • You weren’t in possession of the amount of drugs they claimed.
  • The lab made errors.
