04. Selling or Possession of drugs

Image by Michael Longmire

Drug charges can result from narcotics, like cocaine and heroin, as well as other controlled substances, like prescription pills. Drug charges can be related to either the possession of drugs or the sale of drugs.


Many courts in Albany County and the Greater Capital District have drug treatment programs, as an alternative to incarceration for those who suffer from substance abuse. Notwithstanding these diversionary programs, the penalties for drug charges can be severe, depending on your record.


Drug possession charges can be the result of an illegal search or other constitutional violation. Obtaining a dedicated and experienced defense attorney, who can review the evidence and determine whether the evidence was obtained as a result of an illegal search, is important when facing drug charges.


If you’ve been charged with a drug charge in Albany County or the Greater Capital District, contact the Calabrese Law Firm, PLLC, for a free consultation.
