Defense for Drug Crime Charges in Nampa
Challenging Drug Paraphernalia Charges
In Idaho, one can face misdemeanor charges for the use, sale, or possession of drug paraphernalia. This is an item that is associated with the manufacture, use, distribution, transportation, or sale of illegal drugs or illegally possessed prescription drugs. Because many items that are considered “drug paraphernalia” may have other, regular uses, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the item was intended for drug-related use.
You need to move quickly if you have been accused of or arrested for drug paraphernalia possession or any type of drug crime. Early involvement of a Nampa drug crime lawyer at Gulstrom & Govia PC can make a significant difference as we work to secure evidence that the item was intended for regular use, that the search was unlawful, or that mistakes were made in the handling of evidence. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your charges, we will work to develop a strategy that provides the swiftest and most effective results.
