Possession of Drugs in a Car

New Jersey Drug Possession in Car Attorney

In New Jersey, it is illegal for anyone operating a motor vehicle to knowingly possess a dangerous controlled substance. If an officer of the law pulls you over and finds that you have drugs in your car, you will face standard charges of drug possession, and additional charges for operating a vehicle with drugs in it. Possessing drugs in a motor vehicle is a serious offense and requires a knowledgeable and experienced yet aggressive defense.

Defending your Charge

When creating the best defense strategy possible for your case, Anthony N. Palumbo, New Jersey Drug Possession Lawyer will carefully discuss all of the essentials of the case with you. A common defense in cases involving possession of drugs in a car is that the officers did not have the right to search the vehicle, and therefore the search violated the driver's constitutional rights. If it can be shown that your rights were violated prior to the seizure of the marijuana, the fact that the police located marijuana in your vehicle will not be allowed in court, and will greatly improve your chances of acquittal.

Were you aware that drugs were in your car? Can the state prove that you knew drugs were in your car? Were you operating the car? These and other factors in your case will be considered before determining how to build your defense. I work closely with my clients to discuss their needs and circumstances. My goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
