Our Drug Possession Defense Experience Can Put You at Ease
At Slaferek Callihoo, our criminal lawyers have successfully defended clients who have been arrested and accused of illegally possessing such substances as marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamines, heroin, oxycontin, pain killers, and illegal prescription drugs.
In Alberta’s drug possession criminal code, a question exists whether the evidence against you was obtained lawfully or not. Drug arrest evidence cannot be used against you should the police have performed an illegal search and seizure to obtain said evidence. In preparing for trial, Slaferek Callihoo’s lawyers attempt to refute the police investigation as well as the prosecutor’s case by examining:
- 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 wire tap?
- Is the quality of the evidence against you questionable?
We Are Aggressive Criminal Justice Lawyers for Drug Possession Charges
Drug possession laws in 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.
Drug possession penalties for a guilty conviction can include, but are not limited to, fines, court-ordered treatment, and significant prison sentences. If you or someone you know is trying to keep clear of a serious drug possession penalty, contact Slaferek Callihoo today. Our criminal defense team has successfully undermined the prosecution’s case by scrutinizing the drug possession arrest, the police investigation, and the collection of evidence.
