Possession of CDS (Drugs) in Motor Vehicle
Arrested for Drugs found in Your Car
If you are found guilty of a Possession of CDS in a Motor Vehicle violation, you will lose your license for two years. The act of possessing illegal drugs violates both New Jersey criminal law and New Jersey Motor Vehicle law. As a result, defendants may face criminal and traffic consequences. David C. Barry can help in either scenario.
The most devastating penalty for this conviction is the 2 year mandatory license suspension but also may include fines of not less than $50. This penalty is required under the law and not subject to judicial discretion. In other words, the Judge does not have the authority to reduce or waive the suspension. Often, the experienced criminal defense attorneys can find a resolution to dismiss the companion motor vehicle charge as part of a larger plea bargain.
It is critical that you are represented by a competent and experienced lawyer. Your criminal defense attorney can negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain the best possible result and, if necessary, participate in a trial on your behalf. The firm has extensive experience handling these types of matters and would be pleased to offer you a complimentary consultation to discuss the facts of your case. Call David C. Barry today at 732-204-7387.
