Defending People Against Drug Possession Charges

If drugs were found during a traffic stop, then you need an experienced attorney on your side. It doesn't matter if you were a passenger in the wrong car at the wrong time. If convicted, you could be facing a state prison term.

At the law office of Glenn R. Bruno, Esq., I have more than 20 years of experience handling criminal defense matters. If you were charged with possessing drugs in a car, I can attempt to help you thoroughly explore your options and make sure you understand the possible consequences of any decision you make regarding your case going forward.

Not Even Your Car? — It Doesn't Matter.

When the police carry out a search and seizure that finds drugs in a car, everyone in the car could be facing drug possession charges as a result. When drugs are found in a common area like a car, or even a room in a home, under the law, it is presumed that every individual there had possession of the drugs.

What Can You Do Now?

If you have been arrested for drug possession, your defense may fall into two steps:

  • First, I can make a motion on your behalf to attempt to suppress the evidence.
  • Second, I will attempt to defend you at trial.

In some cases, the only line of defense is a motion to suppress the evidence, but based on the factual circumstances of your case, other defenses may be available.

If you are facing drug charges, you cannot afford to take your situation lightly. To schedule a free in-office or telephone consultation, contact me in Poughkeepsie, New York, at 845-206-4501 or toll free 888-324-0551 today.
