Possession of Illegal Substances

Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony will depend on the facts of your case, including what type of drug was found in your possession, the amount of drugs found, and if you have any former drug convictions. If you are a first-time offender found with less than one kilogram of marijuana, for instance, you will generally be charged with a misdemeanor, face a fine of $200 to $500, and incarceration of up to one year. If you were driving while in possession of marijuana, you may lose your license for 6 months for a first offense.

Other drug possession charges, such as possessing a controlled substance like cocaine, may be punishable by fines from $500 to $5000, up to 3 years of incarceration, possible drug education classes, and community service. If convicted, you will have a criminal record which may negatively impact your future. There are many possible defenses to drug possession charges, depending on the facts of the case.

By consulting with a Providence drug possession lawyer at our firm, you will receive the benefit of our firm's extensive experience in defending these cases.
