Drug Possession Charge in Holmdel
Illegal possession of drugs/CDS is an indictable crime with the limited exception of fifty (50) grams or less of marijuana. Possessing marijuana in a higher quantity, cocaine, heroin, MDMA or almost any other form of CDS results in a felony offense that must be referred to the Monmouth County Superior Court for handling. Typically, someone who possesses drugs like these faces a third degree crime with a maximum fine of $35,000, up to 5 years in prison, and a 6-24 months driver’s license revocation. It takes skillful representation to sidestep consequences like these and this is something our firm can absolutely achieve in a high percentage of cases. We are accomplished defense lawyers who handle Holmdel drug cases involving:
MDMA (a.k.a. Molly, Ecstasy, etc.)
Prescription drugs like Xanax, Valium, Morphine, GHB, Oxycodone, Adderall, Ritalin and Hydrocodone
Possession of drugs is nothing to take lightly. Whether you were arrested at school, on a local roadway in the township, on the Garden State Parkway or at PNC Arts Center, possessing an illegal drug in Holmdel exposes you to significant punishment.
Arrested For Distributing Drugs in Holmdel
An entirely different set of laws applies if your drug charge involves selling, distributing or possession with the intent to distribute. The general distribution statute that applies when this is the case is N.J.S.A. 2C:35-5 although any number of laws may be implicated depending on where the conduct occurred in Holmdel. If you are accused of selling heroin, MDMA or even marijuana in Holmdel Park or another recreational facility, you may be facing a separate charge for distribution in a public park. Another separate offense may have arisen if it is alleged that you sold a drug/cds at Holmdel High School or in another school zone of the township.
