Let's Change The Outcome

You could be charged over drugs that are not yours

In South Carolina, it is no secret that there are a large number of people engaged in the use, manufacture and distribution of controlled substances. As a result, authorities are constantly on the lookout for evidence that an individual may be involved in one of these crimes. However, it is notoriously difficult to pinpoint these offenses accurately and this can often lead to the false incrimination of innocent people.

One way this can happen is if drugs are found within a vehicle or a property rather than on someone’s person. In these circumstances officers are forced to attempt to determine whom the drugs belong to. This could be the owner of the property or vehicle or any other occupant. It is even possible that some of these people are aware of the presence of the drugs while others aren’t.

Unfortunately, if illegal substances are found in your home, car, locker or anywhere else that you have regular access to, there is a good chance that you could face drug possession charges even if you did not know they were there. To make things worse, the penalties for conviction can often be severe. As such, a good defense is critical.

If you have been charged with an offense of this nature, our page on drug crime could be of invaluable assistance to you. It is also possible that you may benefit from the advice of an attorney. He or she can evaluate the details of your case and may be able to offer the support and guidance you require to clear your name and avoid conviction.
