Defenses for Drug Possession in Ohio

Our team of legal advisors at Fortress Law Group are no strangers when it comes to defending against drug possession crimes. A Willoughby drug crime attorney from Fortress Law Group will provide a comprehensive case review, a clear understanding of potential outcomes, and a solid defense strategy for your specific case.

From the moment that an arrest occurs, the best thing you can do is remain silent and refrain from volunteering any incriminating information. Officers can have a way of making questioning seem merely conversational, but it is important to know that any information you relay can be used against you in court.

A few of the common defense strategies used in Ohio drug possession cases include:

  • Law enforcement conducted an illegal search and seizure that led to the arrest.
  • The drugs possessed did not belong to the defendant.
  • The drug was legally prescribed.
  • The offender was entrapped, or tricked, into committing the crime.

These are just a few possible strategies that could work in drug possession defense. Contact a Fortress Law Group attorney to determine what type of defense could be plausible in your unique case.
