Drug Possession Misdemeanors
Drug charges in New Jersey can range from simple drug possession misdemeanors to multi-jurisdictional federal drug trafficking felonies. Regardless of the charge, you need a competent and dedicated criminal defense attorney knowledgeable in the drug-related laws of New Jersey to help you obtain the most favorable outcome.
Depending upon the nature of your drug crime, your lawyer may also advocate on your behalf for the imposition of an alternative sentencing structure wherein you are able to obtain rehabilitation for an underlying substance abuse problem. By working with a drug crime attorney through the drug defense process, you are taking the guesswork out of the prosecution’s next move and are gaining greater control over the outcome of your case.
The amount and type of drugs involved in your matter dictates whether your case will be a municipal court matter or not. For example, simple drug possession misdemeanors are often handled in municipal court. Regardless of the charge, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to navigate through the process.
