Criminal Defense Attorney: Drug Possession

Woodbridge, NJ

Being charged with drug possession in Woodbridge is a traumatic and potentially devastating event. An arrest or a criminal charge for drug or drug paraphernalia possession can have life-changing consequences that can impact your future employment, your position in your community, and how others perceive you.

A conviction in Woodbridge for either possession of marijuana (N.J.S. 2C:35-10) or drug paraphernalia (N.J.S. 2C:36-1) carries mandatory fines and assessments, as well as a six month license suspension and possible probation, including random drug testing.

Most defendants' marijuana charges arise as a result of a police-initiated search of their person, car or home. In such cases, the Law Offices of Todd B.

Resisting Arrest Charge

Any action to hinder or resist an arrest in Woodbridge can result in the issuance of a summons under N.J.S. 2C:29-2. A conviction results in a criminal record. The statute encompasses any and all of the following scenarios:

I. Eluding a police officer who is attempting to arrest the individual;

II. Using or threatening to use force against an officer during an arrest; and

III. Providing an officer with false identification (either verbally or by presentation of a false official document, i.e. a fake ID)

A successful defense of a resisting arrest charge involves close scrutiny of the procedures employed by the police at the time of the arrest, and whether their determination of resistance was justified. Many aspects of this charge are subject to legal and technical interpretation, and can be effectively used for dismissal or a reduced charge.
