The crime of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance, knowingly or intentionally.
If you are caught in possession of illegal substances, you could find yourself facing one of three charges; the first is Possession of a Controlled Substance; the second, Possession with Intent to Distribute Drugs or Distribution of Drugs, and the third is Possession of Marijuana.
Whilst these charges are distinguished by quantity and type of substance carried, as well as what you intended to do with them, each can have serious effects on your quality of life. Whether landing you in jail, forcing you to pay a large fine or leaving you with a criminal record, if not approached right, these charges could strip you of your liberty and cause you a lot of distress.
Whichever possession offence you are being accused of, you need an experienced attorney to talk you through your options and fight for your best interests in court. Elliot Savitz is an expert in criminal law, and will ensure that your case is heard, and use his wealth of experience in Massachusetts law to minimise the impact that these charges have on your life.
