Virginia Beach Possession Lawyer

Call the Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller

Many people are under the false assumption that a possession charge is not a serious criminal charge. This is not true. If you have been charged with drug possession involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, or meth, you could be facing serious penalties that include significant prison time.

If a large enough amount of the drug was present or if other circumstances exist to suggest that the drugs were not for personal use, the defendant may face drug trafficking or distribution charges. At The Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, our Virginia Beach possession lawyer understands the severity of drug possession charges. We work hard on behalf of clients facing criminal charges, examining all potential defense options.

Contact us to reach a Virginia Beach possession attorney and to learn how we can help defend you against possession charges.

Get the Solid Defense You Need

Many possession charges require mandatory minimum sentencing, which establishes a minimum prison sentence to those convicted of a drug crime. Possessing Schedule I drugs, (such as heroin and Ecstasy) or schedule II drugs (such as methamphetamine and cocaine) is a felony crime that can require a prison sentence of up to 10 years. Possessing a small amount of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor crime that may require driver's license suspension, up to $500 in fines, and up to 30 days in jail.

We Know the Technical Defenses

Similar to DWI law in Virginia, possession cases have a lot of nuances and legal technicalities. For instance, police cannot presume possession of narcotics based on finding the drugs in the same vehicle as the driver.

As your Virginia Beach criminal defense lawyers, we ask the right questions, such as:

  • Did you actually possess the drugs?
  • If not, where were the narcotics located at the time of the arrest?
  • If drugs were not on you, did the police assume you knew they were near?
  • Can the officer actually prove the substance was an illegal drug?
  • What probable cause did the police have for making the arrest?
  • Did the officer do everything right while making the arrest?

These questions all speak to your constitutional rights.
