First time possession in Arizona is a serious felony offense. Anytime drugs are found in a vehicle or an apartment, everyone present is a potential defendant for the charge of possession. You may get charged because someone there told the police that you brought the drugs with you. Or you may be physically closest to the drugs. The prosecutor must prove that you knowingly possessed an unlawful substance. In order to prove knowingly, he must show at a minimum some nexus between you and the drugs. Possession cases in Arizona are usually filled with search and seizure issues which can greatly affect the outcome of your case.
