Consequences of a Drug Possession Conviction in New Jersey
Drug possession convictions have collateral consequences that can affect you for the rest of your life. Even a disorderly person’s conviction can result in a permanent criminal record. Conviction of any drug possession charge can result in suspension of your driver’s license and loss of eligibility for student financial aid.
If you are convicted of an indictable crime, the consequences are even more serious. Beyond a possible prison sentence, you would face the loss of civil rights such as the right to vote and own firearms. Few employers want to hire someone with a criminal record.
If this is your first offense, there may be a way to resolve the charges without a criminal conviction. Our lawyers can also evaluate defenses that may be available to you. Defenses in drug possession cases often revolve around drug search and seizure issues. If the police violated your Fourth Amendment rights, it may be possible to suppress the drug evidence.
Our lawyers handle all types of drug possession charges, including marijuana, meth, cocaine, and heroin, as well as prescription drugs such as OxyContin and oxycodone.
