Aggressive Defense Against Drug Charges

Drug Possession Crimes in Denver

Stand Up For Your Rights with a Criminal Lawyer

While it is true that in Colorado adults 21 or over may legally possess one ounce of marijuana, it is also true that drug possession arrests have not been significantly affected since the law was instituted. Even when consumed personally and recreationally, most people will use more than a single ounce. Additionally, most other controlled substances can be subject to harsh penalties for possession, no matter how much is discovered.

Drug crime attorney Chris Cessna and his team at The Law Office of Christopher H. Cessna have been practicing criminal defense for over 20 years. Throughout their experience, they have learned effective tactics for dismantling the prosecutions’ claims, including a sharp eye for evidence and challenging whether the arresting officer’s search and seizure of illicit substances was even legitimate. Aggressive representation is just a phone call away.

Avoid the Harsh Penalties of Drug Possession Crimes

Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, drug possession charges could range from a misdemeanor to a felony. No matter how slight the accusations may seem, it is important to understand that any sort of conviction can carry with it damaging punishments. When you prepare a reliable case with attorney Chris Cessna, he can help you defend yourself against the high penalties of a drug possession conviction.

Penaltiesmay be as severe as:

  • $600 to $100,000 fines
  • Six months to six years in prison
  • Mandatory rehabilitation programs
  • Destruction of reputation – leading to job or education loss

Repeat offenders or those with prior criminal convictions will face even harsher scrutiny when charged for drug possession. In certain situations, convictions could be escalated to four times the maximum penalty.
