Camden County Attempted Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
Recently, Camden County charged over 40 people in a sting operation with Attempted Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance. This is a third degree crime and an attempt like this is punished in the same was as the actual crime. In other words, there is no difference if you are charged with attempt or actual possession of CDS. The primary defense in these cases is entrapment. Most people are familiar with the entrapment defense. If the defense attorney can show that the undercover police officer initiated the criminal activity, then the defense may be successful. While the initial consultation may shed some light on this issue, the police reports are needed to really analyze this defense and any other that may be useful.
