Juvenile Drug Possession Defense Lawyer Atlantic City & Cape May Attorney

Defending Common Drug Charges that Juveniles Face

Being charged with a crime is something no parent wants to see their child go through. But, once it has happened, the smartest response is to begin taking action to defend your child from overzealous prosecution and the possibility of unnecessarily harsh consequences.

Possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana is one of the most common drug charges that juveniles face. This charge can result in up to six months of detention and/or a six-month driver’s license suspension.

Drug possession charges involving the operating of a motor vehicle will result in additional, more serious charges as will possession of greater amounts of marijuana than 50 grams or possession of drugs such as:

  • Cocaine
  • Oxycodone/Oxycontin
  • Percocet
  • Vicodin
  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy
