Attorneys defending Little Rock, Arkansas residents in State and Federal drug possession cases involving marijuana, methamphetamine, prescription medications, and cocaine
Possession charges can be filed as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the quantity of narcotics involved. These cases are often filed in state court. Under some circumstances, one may be facing federal criminal charges. Possession cases are often decided by whether or not the rights of the accused were violated. If your Fourth Amendment rights were not respected by authorities then it may be possible to prevent the drugs from being introduced at trial. Hiring an attorney who is versed in the area of illegal search and seizure is critical to your defense.
