How to beat a hydrocodone possession charge

3 ways to fight a hydrocodone charge:

1. Prove your 4th amendment rights were violated.

If you or your property were searched without consent or probable cause, you may have been a victim of an unlawful search and seizure. If the hydrocodone was found in “plain view”, however, it can most likely get seized and used for evidence.

2. The arresting officer lacked probable cause.

If you were stopped without probable cause, you could likely prove the stop was unjustified and unlawful. Ask yourself - did the officer have a reason to stop me?

3. Verify the hydrocodone belongs to someone else.

One of the most popular defenses to any criminal charge is to claim you didn’t commit the crime. A knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer would pressure the prosecutor to prove the hydrocodone found actually belonged to their client.

 

The best way to fight a hydrocode charge is to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney that knows their way around the law.
