Drug possession Background

A married couple in Missouri faced serious legal jeopardy when federal authorities raided their home, seizing a large quantity of drugs. Both husband and wife were charged with drug possession and trafficking, despite suspicions that only one party might have been involved.


The prosecution’s case relied on the presence of drugs in the shared residence. However, the investigation failed to establish which individual had knowledge of drug possession. This lack of specificity presented a significant legal hurdle for the prosecution.

Summary of Drug Possession Defense 

A husband and wife were charged in connection to a federal raid on their home resulting the seizure of large drugs in their home. Although it was suspected that the husband was primarily or wholly responsible, a poor investigation could not establish that more than one person in the home knew of the drugs’ presence and could not establish which person in the home was the one who did know of their presence.

Based on James Law Group’s analysis of the evidence and existing law, the State dismissed all charges against both the husband and the wife.
