Michigan Possession of Cocaine, Heroin, and Methamphetamines Lawyers
Michigan has very strict laws when it comes to possession of any drug, and cocaine is no exception. Currently it does not matter what form the cocaine is in, it is illegal to possess, sell, package, manufacture or distribute it.
Do You Know Under Michigan Laws
Controlled substance-possession of methamphetamine/ecstasy, a felony punishable by 10 years and/or $15,000.
Controlled substance-possession of heroin less than 25 grams, a felony punishable by four years and/or $25,000.
To prove Possession of Cocaine at trial, the prosecution must establish the following elements beyond a reasonable doubt:
The Defendant possessed a certain substance (actual or constructive possession);
The substance was cocaine;
The Defendant had knowledge of the presence of the substance.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF COCAINE POSSESSION
You could face serious criminal penalties if the prosecution alleges:
Actual possession: This means that you had direct and immediate physical control over the cocaine. You will be charged with actual possession if cocaine was legally found in your pocket, in a body cavity or in your purse or briefcase.
Constructive possession: This means that the cocaine was not found on your person but that it was discovered in a location over which you have control. For example, you can face constructive possession charges if cocaine is found in your home even if you are not there at the time of the discovery.
Joint possession: This is when you and at least one other person shares constructive possession of the cocaine. You could face joint possession charges, for example, if your roommate has cocaine in the common refrigerator and you know about it and let your roommate keep it there.
If you have been charged with any type of cocaine possession charges -related offense in Michigan, it is very important that you speak immediately with an experienced Michigan defense lawyer who knows how to handle Forgery cases. Because these types of criminal cases necessarily involve a close relative or other close relationship, they are often much more emotional and can be very challenging for an attorney to handle. The Michigan Forgery lawyers at our Law Firm have the experience necessary as well as the litigation and negotiation skills that you need if you have been charged with a Forgery crime.
There are a number of very good defenses for fighting against marijuana possession arrest.
We can challenge the search and seizure of the cocaine substance. Did the police have probable cause to search your home, car or person for marijuana ? Was a search warrant involved? Did the police have probable cause to rightfully obtain a search warrant? If there was no search warrant, the search is per se unconstitutional unless the state can prove that there was probable cause. We will make a motion to suppress the search and seizure. If the police did not have probably cause to search you, then they have violated your rights under both the US Constitution and the laws of Michigan, which would make the evidence inadmissible in court.
