In Alberta, the drug possession criminal code questions whether or not the evidence against you was obtained lawfully. Drug arrest evidence cannot 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?
You Need Aggressive Criminal Justice Lawyers for Drug Possession Charges
Drug possession laws in the Province of 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 the charged party had both knowledge of the illegal substance and control over that substance.
Penalties for drug possession, trafficking, and importation for a guilty conviction may include, but are not limited to: fines, court-ordered treatment, and significant prison sentences. If you, or someone you know, are trying to keep clear of a serious drug possession penalty, a drug trafficking penalty, or a drug importation penalty, we invite you to contact the law offices of Slaferek Callihoo. With years of experience regarding drug possession cases, our criminal law team has successfully undermined the prosecution’s case by scrutinizing the drug possession arrest, the police investigation, and the collection of evidence.
