Constructive possession is one of the most common ways the State charges people with drug possession. What this means is the drugs don’t have to be in your physical possession (like in your pocket) if the State can prove you (1) exercised dominion and control over the drugs and (2) had knowledge of their presence. This commonly occurs when drugs are found in a car that is occupied by more than one person. The State can everyone in the car with possession. We have successfully argued for dismissal in cases where the State alleges constructive possession and we are prepared to do so for you. Call Murphy & Downs Law Offices today for a free consultation.
