Many people make the mistake of thinking that marijuana possession is not a criminal offense or that conviction of this crime will have minimal or no consequences. Possession of marijuana is a crime in Connecticut, and individuals facing this charge could receive jail or prison time if convicted.
Considerations In Marijuana Possession Cases
At our Hartford law firm, the Law Offices of Robert B. Muchinsky, LLC, our principal attorney defends clients charged with marijuana possession. He thoroughly understands the considerations in drug cases, which include:
- The amount of the drug
- The defendant's criminal record
- Whether the prosecution can prove intent to sell
He also knows the programs available for individuals found with small amounts of marijuana or those charged with possessing illegal drug paraphernalia. Our attorney has helped clients avoid jail and prison by advocating for drug education classes and diversion programs, community service and other alternatives to jail.
Defending Students, Helping Their Parents
Our clients include students from the many colleges and universities in the region, including the University of Hartford, Trinity College, Wesleyan University, Quinnipiac University, Yale University, the University of Connecticut and other area colleges. We know that a criminal record can halt an individual's progress. We work with students and their parents to secure the best possible outcome and protect our clients' rights and futures.
