Criminal offenses involving controlled substances, including cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamines, and prescription drugs (vicodin, oxycontin and codeine) are set forth under Article 21 of the New York Penal Law. Those charges range from misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance to serious felony charges, depending upon the amount or weight of the substance discovered. Marijuana possession and sale are set forth in Article 22 of the New York Penal Law. No matter if it is a case involving a controlled substance or marijuana, our White Plains criminal defense attorneys have extensive experience in aggressively representing the interests of clients charged with any drug crime.
Over the years, our criminal defense lawyers have successfully challenged the introduction of drug evidence by arguing that authorities failed to abide by search and seizure laws. In fact, the "legality" of a search is often an issue that arises in drug related cases.
Recently, the Westchester criminal defense attorneys of Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP successfully defended a client facing charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance (a misdemeanor offense) in the White Plains City Court. After a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the arrest and an aggressive challenge to the evidence, criminal drug charges were reduced to a non-criminal and non-drug related violation. The client, who was facing a criminal conviction, three years of probation, and high financial penalties and fines, walked out the courthouse without a criminal record and with his life intact.
