State Laws Against Drug Possession
Under K.S.A. § 21-5706 possession of opiates, narcotics, or stimulant controlled substances is a class 4 felony. This type of felony is punishable by a fine of up to $100,000 and a possibility of 16 months in prison. Possession of any other type of controlled substance is a class A nonperson misdemeanor. This comes with a fine up to $2,500 and a jail sentance up to one year.
Ways to Defend Yourself
Whether or not you are guilty of the accusations made against you, it is crucial that you build a strong case that helps you tell your side of the story. Our firm has decades of experience helping our clients fight the charges made against them by making good use of the law. Sometimes, merely having a criminal defense lawyer demand that police produce the so-called incriminating evidence can be enough to cast significant doubt on their assertions.
In Kansas, even a simple possession of marijuana can result in huge fines and length jail sentences. The penalties are worse if the drug involved was a more serious one, such as cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamines. Duma Law Offices knows how to help you explain yourself and obtain a more favorable outcome for your situation.
Some effective defenses can include demonstrating that:
- Police acted unlawfully in their search and seizure of your vehicle or person
- The drugs in question did not belong to you
- No such drugs exist, as shown by the prosecution’s inability to produce them as requested
- You were a victim of entrapment
- The drugs were not illegal, such as if they were mistaken or you had a valid prescription for them
In all these cases, it helps to have more time to build a strong case. The sooner you call our firm, the better chance we will have to understand how to best help you.
