Fighting drug possession charges in Alberta
Drug possession penalties for a criminal conviction often include fines, court-ordered treatment and serious prison sentences. If you or someone you know wants to avoid a serious drug possession penalty, you should contact the law offices of Gunn Law Group. We have decades of experience in successfully dismantling the prosecution’s case; we scrutinize the drug possession arrest, the police investigation and the collection of evidence to bolster your defense argument and lessen drug possession penalties.
Drug possession laws in Alberta prohibit a person from being in possession of illegal and illicit substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, heroin, and crystal meth. Yet before the prosecution can prove possession, though, it must be demonstrated that the accused person had both control and knowledge of the substance.
Reasons That Drug Charges Can Be Dropped In Alberta
In every drug possession case, there is a question of whether the evidence against the accused was obtained lawfully or not. If the police performed an illegal search and seizure, the evidence cannot be used. We will weaken the police investigation and prosecution’s case by questioning the following:
- Was a search warrant issued?
- Were the terms of the warrant executed properly?
- Was there probable cause to issue a search warrant?
- Was there probable cause to allow a wiretap?
- Is the quality of the evidence against you questionable?
The criminal law attorneys the Gunn Law Group have successfully defended clients who have been arrested and charged with possessing illegal substances such as marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine, heroin, OxyContin, painkillers and illegal prescription drugs.
