If your vehicle was parked and you can provide compelling evidence that it had been parked since before you came into possession of drugs, then you may be able to have the charge dismissed.
In a case where you were caught smoking marijuana in your parked car outside of your workplace, for instance, the CDS in a motor vehicle charge would likely not stand.
CDS in a motor vehicle is a unique drug charge in New Jersey, because it is technically a motor vehicle offense, carrying a two year driver’s license suspension as the penalty.
It is likely charged along with other drug offenses that are criminal, which gives you ample ground to fight back or avail yourself of alternative sentencing.
