Aggressive Defense Against Drug Charges

Denver Drug Possession Lawyer

Stand Up For Your Rights with a Criminal Lawyer

Although adults 21 or over may legally possess one ounce of marijuana, it is also true that drug possession arrests have not been affected since Colorado instituted the law. 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 drug possession, no matter how much is discovered.

Denver drug possession lawyer 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, our attorneys have effective tactics for dismantling the prosecution’s claims. These tactics include a sharp eye for evidence and challenging whether the arresting officer’s search and seizure of illicit substances were legitimate. Aggressive representation in Denver is just a phone call away.

What Are The Penalties For Drug Possession in Colorado?

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

Penalties may 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 charges will face even harsher scrutiny when charged with drug possession. In certain situations, convictions can escalate to four times the maximum penalty.
