    Speak Up! - View Question #535

    printer friendly version

    Question: If someone finds unused meth in your car that isn't yours can you be charged with possession of illegal substance? Even if it is not yours?

    Answer: It depends. First you can always be charged with possession of drugs, the real question is can you be found guilty of it. In order to be found guilty, the drugs must be on you or within your immediate control. It is presumed that if the drugs are found in your car it is within your control. It will be hard to prove that someone left their drugs in your car and therefore they are not yours. So unless the person who actually own the drugs admits that they are theirs, you won't have much luck in proving the drugs are not yours when found in your car.

    your car is your possession and if they found anything in your car that is understood to be in your possession also, even if it "isnt" yours. you will get busted regardless.
