Drug Possession Charges in Denver, Colorado

Fight Your Charge with an Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney

If convicted for drug possession, you could face years in prison, an expensive fine, and the loss of personal property. The severity of the sentence, if you are convicted, will depend on the schedule of drug in your possession, the amount, and your criminal record. If you are convicted of possessing highly addictive, powerful schedule I or schedule II drugs like heroin, cocaine, or "speed," your prison sentence will likely be longer and the fine leveled against you much higher. And, depending on the amount found in your possession, you could be charged with drug trafficking.

If you are prosecuted for drug trafficking - regardless whether it's marijuana or heroin - the government will likely initiate a criminal forfeiture against you. Under state and federal law, the government can seize any property or assets it believes you acquired with proceeds from illegal drug activity. At Gerash Steiner, P.C., our Denver criminal defense lawyers have the resources and experience to fight the charges against you.

Whether you have been arrested or are currently under investigation for drug possession, contact our Denver criminal defense attorneys at Gerash Steiner, P.C.

Possession of Narcotics and Unlawful Use of Prescription Drugs

Drug possession charges are prosecuted severely in the state of Colorado. Even being found in possession of a small amount of drugs, narcotics, or illegal prescription drugs could carry serious consequences. A drug possession conviction in Colorado could result in either misdemeanor or felony penalties, including excessive fines, prison time, and a permanent criminal record.

Our office advises and defends people charged with drug possession involving the following:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Ecstasy
  • Methamphetamine
  • Illegally obtained prescription drugs

We Know How to Challenge Your Charges

Most drugs are found during car stops. Under the law, however, the police must have reasonable suspicion to pull you over. Even if you had a broken tail light or were speeding-in order to search your car there must be something in plain sight that gives an officer probable cause to search your vehicle. If we can prove that you were stopped without reasonable suspicion or that your car was searched without probable cause, your case could be dismissed!

If drugs were found in your possession during the execution of a search warrant, constitutional questions still arise: was the search warrant valid? Did officers find drugs by lawfully searching the areas specified? Is there hard proof indicating that the drugs found were actually yours? As aggressive advocates for our clients, we pursue the truth and uncover the facts that can increase your chances of securing a satisfactory case resolution.

If an informant was used, our attorneys investigate his or her background and any deal struck between him or her and the prosecution. We expose conflicts of interests and the questionable nature of information while putting the prosecution on the defensive. No matter how incriminating the case against you may seem, you must remember that you have options available to you. We are ready to secure the evidence needed to leverage your case into a favorable position.

If your guilt is not in serious question, we may be able to persuade the court to reduce the sentence or charges against you. Depending on your criminal history, the court may reduce your sentence if it believes you are serious about staying away from drugs, getting help for your problem, and turning your life around. Our experience as criminal defense attorneys means that we understand what the court is looking for and what you need to do to convince them to give you a second chance.
