At Houlon Berman, we have over 50 years of experience representing clients in criminal matters in Maryland and the District of Columbia. We take pride in the results we get for our clients.
In every case, the prosecution bears the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The client has no burden of proof. It is always on the prosecution, plus the jury’s verdict must be unanimous.
If the police arrested you for drug possession, they likely found alleged drugs on you in your vehicle, or in your immediate vicinity. Often, drugs will be seized as a result of an illegal search of your person, vehicle, or home. If the police determine that the quantity of drugs and the manner in which they were possessed did not indicate an intent to distribute, you were likely charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled dangerous substance. Defenses to this offense include that you were not in actual possession of the drugs, that the substance you possess is not the drug the police allege that it is, or if your constitutional rights were violated.
