Understanding Possession Charges
To be charged with drug possession, an individual must knowingly possess a substance containing cannabis. There is no black-and-white threshold for when one knowingly possesses cannabis. Each instance should be examined by a skilled criminal defense attorney. The state must be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the individual knowingly possessed cannabis for the charge to hold.
Protection From Unlawful Search And Seizure
Every United States citizen has the right to be free from an illegal search and seizure. Through our history of dealing with cannabis cases, we have found that law enforcement often intrudes upon this constitutional right such as on Amtrak trains. If this can be proven, evidence could be excluded, and the case against you severely weakened. We will examine every piece of evidence the state has against you and work to have the charges dismissed through pre-trial motions.
Pursuing A Favorable Case Resolution
If the state proves its case against you, you could receive a wide range of penalties. Our efforts do not end with a conviction or a plea of guilty. It is always our goal to keep you out of jail and a conviction off your record. The Illinois legislature enacted laws designed to “reasonably proportion” the penalties for the crime. The intent is to keep people out of jail, but possession of cannabis is still an offense that could submit one to a stint in the county jail. Our attorneys will do everything we can to prevent jail time.
