You can defend against drug charges

As someone who is accused of a crime, it’s in your best interests to move quickly and develop a solid defense explaining your actions. Every case is different, which is why it’s wise to work with someone who understands the ins and outs of the law along with how the specifics of your case could affect the charges and implications of a conviction.

There are a few ways to defend yourself that are common in court. In the case that there is evidence that you committed a crime that can’t be refused, the primary thing you may want to do is use a defense that admits to a crime and then explains why in hopes of not being held responsible.

With a defense admitting to a crime, you’ll want to show why you committed it and how you couldn’t avoid the crime. For example, if you have a controlled substance, you may show that yes, you did transport it, but no, you didn’t know you had it and shouldn’t be held responsible. This works well for those who had drugs in their possession without knowledge of that fact.

For a drug charge, a good way to defend yourself is to show you do not have drugs in your system or that you have legal access to the drug that was in your possession through your work or a prescription. These are just a few ways you might be able to have the charges dropped or lowered in your case.
