Possession in Arizona can be actual or constructive. Depending on the type involved in your case, you could have several defense to your drug charges.
Generally, this means the controlled substance is somewhere on your person, like in your pocket. These cases offer fewer defenses. So, it is important you seek the help of aggressive and experience criminal defense attorneys. At Catalyst Legal Group we will help you every step of the way with your drug case. Including, negotiating a plea agreement, filing motions, performing hearings, and even going to trial to defend your rights. We will even help you to enter the TASC, or deferred prosecution program, which can result in a dismissal of the criminal charges.
Constructive Possession, is much more complex.
It means that you are in control of the controlled substance despite it not being on your person. Such as if it is in a car, your backpack, or room. This is much harder to prove and opens up several ways to combat the prosecutor’s case against you. Contact Catalyst Legal Group to learn how we can best protect your rights for your drug case.
