Many crimes have consequences. When you are caught, charged and convicted of a crime, the consequences will vary, but before you pay a fine, go to jail or anything else, you will have to be proven guilty. Should you play your cards right, you actually may be able to get the charges dropped or reduced and not be punished at all.
Just because you have been accused of drug possession, it doesn’t mean you have to accept the charges. In fact, you could use a defense to prove your innocence. These defenses include unlawful search and seizure, entrapment and planting of drugs. You could use any of these defenses to help you avoid the consequences of the crime, but you need to find the best defense for your situation.
Finding a way to defend yourself can benefit you in several ways, the most important being no jail time or a shorter sentence if you do end up going to jail. In some cases, you may only be fined, which would be better than going to jail. Whatever the consequences may be, it is best to consider all defenses, so you choose the one that is likely to yield favorable results.
