Possession of a Controlled Substance in Michigan

The war on drugs has resulted in countless false convictions and miscarriages of justice in Michigan and nationwide. As courts seek to prosecute individuals accused of drug related offenses, key details can be overlooked, or low-level offenders punished unjustly. The massive amount of drug-related cases handled by the court means public defenders are often overburdened with possession, distribution, and manufacturing cases, and if yours gets lost in the pack, you could face years behind bars and other harsh penalties you may otherwise be able to avoid.

As soon as you are faced with a possession of a controlled substance investigation, it is crucial to contact an experienced private drug crime defense firm. Our federal drug charge defense lawyers work for you and you alone, not the state or countless other clients, and we are committed to devoting as much time as necessary to helping you out. If you have already been charged or even appeared in court, it is never too late to begin working with another attorney – and fully within your right to seek out the best possible counsel.

Possession of a controlled substance is an issue that Michigan courts take seriously, and prosecutors will seek to harshly punish you or your loved one following a criminal charge. Our lawyers understand that every case is unique, and that unique cases should turn out differently. We are willing to do the extensive research and aggressive defense needed to get you a truly just case result.

Our lawyers know that time can work against you, especially in a drug crime case where the state police, DEA, or other agents and officers are already working to build a case against you. That is why we make our team available 24/7 through our toll free hotline at 800-342-7896. Call us now for a no-obligation initial case consultation and let us talk through your options with you. We can advise you on the details you are facing in your unique situation, and discuss options for representation and defense strategies you may wish to pursue.

Possession of a Controlled Substance in Michigan

Possession is one of the charges most often faced by alleged drug crime offenders. If you are caught with drugs on your person or property, you can be charged with drug possession. In many cases, this can be something as simple as a joint or other marijuana related items. Other common substances include cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, LSD, steroids, and unlawful prescription drugs.

The specific penalties that you face in a drug possession case vary greatly based on the type of drug allegedly possessed, and the amount in your possession, however could be as serious as life imprisonment and massive fines. Additionally, there is always a danger in possession cases that prosecutors seek a more serious charge, such as possession with intent, especially if larger amounts of a drug are involved.

The most important thing you need to keep in mind if you or a loved one is facing drug crime accusations or an investigation is to utilize every right at your disposal. One of the first rights you can use is your right to remain silent. Even if you know that you are innocent, don’t give agents or officers anything until you speak with your lawyer. Speaking with your lawyer, too is a critical right, and one you should utilize to your advantage at the earliest opportunity. Contact an attorney and don’t proceed without consulting an experienced drug crime defender who knows Michigan law and has experience dealing with the prosecutors and judges you are up against.
