Drug Distribution in New Jersey
Parsippany Drug Defense Attorney for N.J.S. 2C:35-10
Drug distribution is a serious
drug crime charge, and occurs when a person distributes a drug or other controlled
substance either for by selling or other method. Drug distribution charges
are commonly imposed on offenders who have been distributing illegally
for a prolonged period of time, or who are distributing large quantities
of one or more controlled substances. Drug distribution is a serious crime
and is often associated with other similar charges in an arrest such as
possession, intent to sell, manufacture and others.
While it is commonly believed that drug charges are impossible to beat,
this is not true. Too many offenders settle for the services of a public
defender or an inexperienced defense attorney instead of enlisting the
expertise of an attorney who can identify common mistakes in terms of
arrest, evidence collection and more.
Much of a prosecutor's case may rely on circumstantial evidence and
specialist testimony, and while a picture may be painted that points to
the defendant as the guilty party, there are usually opportunities to
establish doubt. In many cases, circumstantial evidence can mean something
as simple as the presence of a scale or baggies which are then assumed
to be part of a drug distribution operation.
