Possession of Substance Lawyer in Clinton North Carolina

Possession of a drug or any unlawful substance is only when a person knowingly has the substance in his possession. This requires two main things. First, the defendant should be aware that he or she is carrying a substance that is illegal. For example, if a person borrows a car from his friend and is checked by police and accused guilty of having drugs, he might not be charged if he assures to be unaware of the drugs already present in the car. Secondly, the defendant should also be aware that the substances he is carrying are banned in the state. Contact Abogado Guerrero at our Clinton North Carolina office at 910-379-4688.

Controlled Substance:
Various types of drugs are considered to be controlled when available only through a prescription. The exact wording of the law states that if you have possession of a controlled substance unless it is taken under a doctor’s valid prescription then it won’t be considered illegal.
Possession Vs. Distribution:
Depending on the situation, people charged with possessing an illegal substance may face problems like charges of possession of drugs to sell them, which is much serious than simple possession. The intent of possession is charged based on the number and quantity of drugs a person is carrying if it is too large in quantity for a single person’s use. Other evidence to show intent is a large amount of money, a list of customers, or packing materials.

Possession of drugs is a crime under state and federal laws. While simple possession is a small crime; whereas a possession with intent has harsher consequences. People charged with simple possession are fined or possible rehabilitation programs. At the same time, people having the intent to sell the drugs may face fines up to $100,000 and be sent to jail for about ten years depending on the drug and its quantity.
