If the police have placed you under arrest or charged you with drug possession based on drugs they found in your possession that weren't yours, you are probably in a panic and wondering what to do. In these types of situations there is no point in attempting to claim your innocence or argue that the drugs the police found did not belong to you. The police hear these types of claims all the time from criminals who are desperately trying to stay out of prison or, at the very least, prevent drug charges from being filed against them. If drugs were found in your possession, as far as the arresting officer is concerned, the drugs belong to you.
To increase your chances of being able to prove your claims of innocence and avoid being convicted of a crime you did not commit, it is imperative you hire a proven criminal defense lawyer to aggressively advocate on your behalf. Proving that the drugs found in your possession were not yours will start with you finding out how the drugs came to be in the location where the police found them. Eyewitness statements and other physical evidence can be essential to uncovering the truth about who the drugs belong to and who was responsible for putting them on your person, in your vehicle, on your property or anywhere else where they could be considered as in your possession.
