Possession of a Controlled Substance


Leading your defense to success

If you or a loved one is being investigated or has been charged with possessing a controlled substance, then you need to contact Attorney Cook right away. Choosing to speak with law enforcement to tell “your side of the story” is always unwise. Police officers and law enforcement officials are trained to elicit from you incriminating statements. Seldom do law enforcement officials look for or elicit evidence that points to your innocence. That is why it is important to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney first

Drug Sales v. Simple Drug Possession

Simple Possession of Drug charges can easily be amended to become a “Sales” case.  The difference between a simple possession and a sales case can be based on quantity, the presence or absence of smoking devices and the statements of the suspect.  For example, a drug sales case can be “argued” down to a simple possession case if the attorney can effectively argue that the illegal drug was for personal use.  Often times drug users may buy larger quantities of their drug of choice in order to achieve a lower overall price.  This argument applies equally to cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana.  If you or a loved one is charged with drug sales, then you need to contact Attorney Cook today for aggressive representation in criminal court.
