Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
Phoenix Drug Crime Defense Lawyer
Most people don't realize how easy it is to get in trouble with the
law. In fact, people don't even need drugs in their possession to
be charged with a
drug crime. Generally, even possessing drug paraphernalia is enough for a person
to be arrested. What's more, the paraphernalia doesn't have to
be on your person. Law enforcement may consider the following items "paraphernalia"
in a criminal case:
- Rolling papers
Many people are arrested when drug paraphernalia is found in the trunks
of their cars, the kitchen of their homes, or underneath the car seats.
Sometimes, depending on where the drugs are found, your attorney can argue
that the drug paraphernalia was not yours or that you were not aware of
its presence. However, courts are skeptical; it takes proof in order for
the judge to find these defenses credible.
