In this episode of Legal Minute, we discuss how to build a potential defense for a drug distribution case. Anyone arrested for drug distribution in Virginia could face jail time and a hefty fine. However, this is only true if an officer can prove two facts: You possessed the drugs and you were involved in the distribution of the drugs. To prove possession, an officer must show that the drugs were found on your person (known as actual possession) or in an area that you recently occupied (known as constructive possession). An inability to prove these two factors can be used as a defense for your drug distribution charge. In cases like these, the right attorney makes all the difference. If you have been charged with drug distribution and need a legal defense, contact our experienced criminal defense lawyer at the Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller today.
