Police and prosecutors will often use the quantity of drugs discovered, or how it is packaged, to make a determination on whether the drugs were intended for personal use or for sale.
Because sales of drugs in New Jersey are a much more serious legal matter than personal use amounts, it’s important that you work with experienced criminal defense attorneys who can provide you with the best strategies for your situation.
Ultimately, cases where a defendant claims personal use and the prosecution claims distribution come down to evidence, and it’s important that your attorneys can build an evidence-based case that you are not a drug dealer.
There are ways to prove to a jury that your drug habit is personal and not commercial in nature, and it is possible to get prosecutors to back down when they believe their case is falling apart. Attorney Matthew Reisig has helped clients beat drug charges all over New Jersey.
