Possession of Cocaine or Controlled Substance

Under Florida Statute Section 893.13, Possession of Cocaine or Other Controlled Substance occurs if a person is unlawfully in actual or constructive possession of a controlled substance and knows of the presence of the controlled substance.

In Jacksonville, Florida, many substances can qualify as a controlled substance.  Some of the most popular are Cocaine, Ecstasy, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Xanax.  In order to be in possession of a controlled substance, you must have some type of control or management over the drug.  This is the prosecutor's burden to prove.  This may be difficult for the prosecution to prove in drug cases that involve constructive possession of a controlled substance.  This is just one defense that may apply in you case.

If you have been arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida or the surrounding counties, speak with a Jacksonville Drug Crime Attorney that can review all of your defenses with you.  A Jacksonville Drug Crime Lawyer has experience with trafficking cases and will represent you to the fullest.  Contact our Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyers by email or by calling 904-685-1200.
