Drug Paraphernalia Possession Charges: Needle or Syringe

If you find yourself facing possession charges for a hypodermic needle, you are not alone. Unfortunately, the number of individuals being arrested and charged with this offense seems to be growing every day in NJ. At Spodek Law Group, we understand the seriousness of these charges and the devastating impact they can have on your life. That’s why we offer expert legal representation for anyone facing possession charges for a needle or syringe.

Experienced Attorneys at Spodek Law Group

Led by Attorney Todd Spodek, our criminal defense team boasts over 60 years of experience. Our team includes former New Jersey prosecutors who have an in-depth understanding of the law and know how to navigate the complexities of the criminal justice system. We are available 24/7 to address your needs and offer expert guidance through every step of the legal process.

New Jersey Law – 2C:36-2 & 2C:36-6

The laws governing possession of a needle or syringe in NJ are complex, but they are primarily governed by N.J.S.A. 2C:36-2 and N.J.S.A. 2C:36-6. Section 2C:36-2 is a general law that prohibits the use of drug paraphernalia and criminalizes possession of items intended for use in introducing a controlled dangerous substance (“CDS”) into the body. Section 2C:36-6 goes further in addressing this type of offense and specifically criminalizes the possession or distribution of a hypodermic syringe, needle, or any other instrument adapted for the use of a controlled dangerous substance or controlled substance analog as defined in chapter 35 of Title 2C of the New Jersey Statutes.

Penalties If You Are Charged with Possessing a Needle in NJ

If you are convicted of possessing a hypodermic needle in NJ, you could face serious penalties. While the monetary fines may be limited, the collateral consequences can be devastating. You could be placed on probation or even incarcerated for up to six months. Additionally, a paraphernalia charge falls under the New Jersey Controlled Dangerous Substance laws, which means you could face a six-month driver’s license suspension upon conviction.

Defending Against Possession Charges for a Needle or Syringe

At Spodek Law Group, we have a deep understanding of the law and the experience to handle these types of cases. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to build a strong defense strategy tailored to your unique circumstances. We understand that every case is different and requires a customized approach, which is why we will take the time to understand your situation and develop a comprehensive legal strategy.
