Paraphernalia

(and the accompanying possession charge)


They found your pipe, did they?

An individual charged with the possession of drug paraphernalia faces an important decision when they make the choice to retain or hire the services of an attorney to defend them. A paraphernalia drug offenses can carry the possibility of many hard sanctions:

  • Up to thirty days in jail.

  • A fine of up to $250.00.

  • The inability to drive for six months.

  • The mere possession of a pipe with residue will often lead to a second charge of minor misdemeanor possession.

  • Until September 30, 2011, you could not possess a firearm (you couldn't hunt or become a police officer) with a misdemeanor drug conviction.  After September 30, 2011 you cannot possess a firearm if you were charged with a felony drug conviction.  Paraphernalia is a fourth degree misdemeanor.

  • Under certain conditions a conviction will destroy your ability to obtain student loans.

I believe that it is very important that you know exactly what it is you face.  I am available to you 24-hours a day. Unless in court or another place that prohibits phone usage, I am available to you in an emergency, such as when a search warrant being served on your home. If you are in trouble, are being investigated, or have been charged, then you need to call me immediately. I offer a free initial consultation.

One of the first things I will investigate is whether there was probable cause to be where the police were.  The deck is stacked against you here as there are very police-friendly rules such as the "plain smell doctrine", "inventory after arrest", "towing inventory" and other ways around your right to privacy.

There is much going on in a paraphernalia charge that isn't obvious and depends on your facts.  Please give me a call and allow me to help you through your ordeal.


Hours

If you need immediate advice, call now.  I will make every effort to either take your call or call you back as soon as I can.

It is not required that you take a day off work to meet with me.  I will make every effort to schedule appointments that work with your schedule.
