Yuma Possession Defense Attorney
Charged with Possession in Yuma?
Our state lawmakers have made certain types of possession offenses a misdemeanor. Some individuals do not realize that if you are found to be in possession of marijuana above a minimal amount, even when it is only for your own use, you will be charged with a felony offense. If the drug involved is a certain class of drug, such as cocaine, heroin, PCP, ecstasy or illegally obtained prescription drugs, you will be charged with felony possession.
It is vital that you take action at once if you have been arrested and charged with possession – even a minor marijuana possession charge.
As the penalties are based upon the type of drug and amount in possession, as well as earlier convictions, a conviction of misdemeanor possession can be extremely dangerous if you later are once again caught in any type of drug offense or other criminal offense.
