Providing Experienced Defense For Charlotte Drug Charges

North Carolina and many other states do not take drug charges lightly. They aggressively prosecute to the full extent of the law.

If you've been charged with any type of drug offense - even simple possession - hiring an experienced lawyer to help defend your charge is extremely important. A conviction for a drug offense on a criminal record has widespread consequences to your future.

Decades Of Experience Handling All Types Of Drug Charges

At the Law Office of Christopher A. Connelly, attorney Chris Connelly has been defending clients accused of drug offenses for over 25 years. There likely isn't a case that he has not handled. Along with drug possession, Mr. Connelly often defends those facing state and federal charges involving:

  • Possession with intent to sell or deliver
  • Manufacture or cultivation of controlled substances
  • Drug trafficking
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Marijuana, Cocaine, Ecstasy, Heroin
  • Synthetic drugs, such as synthetic marijuana, commonly referred to as "K2" or "Spice" and synthetic cathinones, commonly referred to as "bath salts" and other drugs containing alpha-PVP

Defenses Against North Carolina Drug Charges

Rights against illegal search and seizures under the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution are often at the heart of these cases.

Many officers fail to follow proper protocol - like failing to obtain a valid search warrant to search your home or failing to properly read you Miranda rights - when they come into possession of the controlled substance, and this often results in a dismissal of charges.

On the other hand, possession can be hard to prove by the DA.  Could another passenger in the car or another occupant of the premises possibly be the possessor?  Can the DA prove a connection between you and the drugs?

Plead Guilty To A Drug Charge? You Could Be Eligible For An Expunction

Under North Carolina law, there are a number of scenarios where an individual who pleads guilty to a drug charge may be able to get his or her case dismissed and then expunged (or sealed from public record).

Such instances include: Those who have had no prior drug or felony convictions and agree to undergo drug education after they have been found guilty of certain controlled substance misdemeanors, possession of drug paraphernalia or a drug possession felony.
