In the Alberta drug possession criminal code, there exists a question of whether or not the evidence against you was obtained lawfully. Drug arrest evidence can’t be used against you, if the police performed an illegal search and seizure to obtain the evidence. In preparing for trial, our lawyers attempt to refute the police investigation and prosecution’s case by examining the following:
- Was a proper search warrant issued?
- Were the terms of the search warrant executed properly?
- Was there sufficient probable cause to issue the search warrant
- Was there sufficient probable cause to allow for a wiretap?
- Is the quality of the evidence against you questionable?
Aggressive criminal justice lawyers for drug possession charges
Drug possession laws in Alberta prohibit a person from being in possession of illegal substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, crystal meth, cocaine, etc. Fortunately for many of our respectable clients, to prove possession, the Crown’s prosecution team must prove that the charged party had both knowledge of the illegal substance and control over that substance.
Drug possession penalties, trafficking and importation penalties for a guilty conviction can include, but aren’t limited to, fines, court-ordered treatment and significant prison sentences. If you or someone you know is trying to keep clear of a serious drug possession penalty, or trafficking and importation penalty, we invite you to contact Harryett & Co. Our criminal defence team has years of experience in successfully undermining the prosecution’s case by scrutinizing the drug possession arrest, the police investigation and the collection of evidence.
