Charged With Possession of Drug Paraphernalia in New York?
Contact New York Drug Crime Attorney Mark J. Sacco
You may have been arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia when police found in your car, in your home or on your person pipes, bottles and other instruments commonly used to store or partake of controlled substances. Drug paraphernalia charges are often add-on charges to drug crime charges such as possession of crack or marijuana.
Don’t Believe It Is Not a Serious Crime
Possession of drug paraphernalia may not be thought of as a serious crime per se — yet any criminal conviction can damage your future, whether misdemeanor or felony, state or federal crime. Prosecutors may try to use possession of drug paraphernalia to rebut common arguments by people accused of drug possession such as, “I didn’t know it was crack.”
Although a drug paraphernalia possession charge may be perceived as a minor charge for a young person or anyone else, in fact, any criminal conviction, particularly a drug crimeconviction, may seriously damage future prospects of college scholarships and hinder a student’s eligibility for federal student loans.
