Drug Crime Defense Strategies Focused on Protecting Your Rights and Your Freedom
The consequences of a conviction for drug crimes can vary dramatically in severity, depending on the charge and where the crime took place. In Philadelphia, individuals accused of possessing small quantities of marijuana are referred to as the Small Amount of Marijuana (SAM) program. These cases are handled as summary offenses, not misdemeanors, and the penalties are relatively light. However, New Jersey does not have a similar program.
Charges involving possession of larger amounts of marijuana or drugs like cocaine and crack come with the threat of more serious penalties. Similarly, charges of possession with intent to sell or drug trafficking can be life-changing if they result in a conviction. These cases may also involve prescription drugs like OxyContin.

How did the arrest take place? If it was a traffic stop, were any rights violated along the way? Police officers have rules to follow, and when they fail to do so, it can lead to any evidence they gathered being thrown out. In the most serious drug trafficking cases, there may have been long-term investigations involving wiretapping and more. John Della Rocca understands the obligations of law enforcement and the methods that can be used to chip away at what may appear to be a strong case at first. The goal is to obtain the best possible outcome.
