Drug Crime Defense Attorneys in Sussex and Warren County,  New Jersey

Warren County NJ Drug Charges LawyerCriminal charges related to possession of controlled dangerous substances (CDS), whether it’s marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or prescription pills are taken very seriously by the criminal justice system in New Jersey. Essentially, whether you are charged with possessing a dime-bag of marijuana or kilos of heroin, you are facing heavy fines, substantial jail time and a loss of driving privileges. Additionally, you can be charged separately for any drug paraphernalia you have, for simply being high in public, or for not turning over the alleged drugs to the nearest law enforcement officer. Further, possession a controlled dangerous substance in a motor vehicle is a separate traffic violation that subjects you to a two-year license suspension.
