Call to Speak with a Drug Paraphernalia Possession Attorney

Drug Paraphernalia Possession Attorney in Salt Lake City Utah

Drug paraphernalia possession for a first time offense can mean six months in jail.

Merely having pipes that can be used to smoke marijuana is enough to arrest you and take you to jail.

In Utah, drug paraphernalia possession can often times result in many of the same consequences as if you had actually possessed the drug itself. Perhaps the most annoying aspect of a conviction of drug paraphernalia possession is that you automatically lose your driver’s license for six (6) months and there is nothing a judge or lawyer can do about it.  That is why it is so important that you avoid the conviction.

At Utah Defenders we are experienced criminal defense attorneys.  We are based in Salt Lake City but serve all of Utah.  We handle drug paraphernalia possession cases constantly and understand the best methods of defense and the most effective ways to get such cases dismissed.  We represent clients from all over the country who have been charged with Utah drug paraphernalia possession and our clients both local and out of state come away satisfied and confident that they chose the right criminal defense attorneys for the job.

Most Drug Paraphernalia Possession Charges Derive from Traffic Stops

Remember, if you are pulled over for a traffic violation you do not have to say anything to the law enforcement agency.  If they ask you if you have drug paraphernalia in the car politely remain silent and ask the officer why you were pulled over.  Do not let the officer intimidate you into believing that you have to say anything to him.  And, do not believe the officer when he tells you that he will go easier on you if you just answer your questions.  That is never the case.  If you have drug paraphernalia in the car the officer is going to cite you for it whether you admit to it or not.  Maintain your right to remain silent.

Remember, drug paraphernalia possession is illegal, so the more you “cooperate” with law enforcement the more likely it will be that you will end up with serious criminal charges against you.
