It is important to remember that a possession charge can be escalated to distribution or sales if the Utah police find significant evidence of trafficking. This includes scales, baggies, and other tools used to distribute or sell drugs. Additionally, suppose you are found with a large quantity of drugs on you (for example, over an ounce of marijuana). In that case, you could be charged with possession with intent to distribute, which is a much more severe charge than simple possession.
Trying to defend yourself against a possession charge without a St. George criminal defense lawyer can be extremely dangerous. Law enforcement agents are trained in interrogations and are much more likely to get you to confess to something than you are. They also have access to resources that can help them catch you in lies—and they will use them if they feel it is necessary to win a case.
It is critical for your freedom that you have an experienced defense attorney on your side when fighting drug charges. Call Aric Cramer, Attorney at Law, for a free consultation today at 435-627-1565.
