Juvenile Possession of Drugs in Arizona

If you are charged with possession in Arizona as a minor, you may be eligible to complete a drug diversion program in which you would receive drug counseling and be drug tested. If you successfully complete the program, the charges are not filed. However, if you are close to your 18th birthday, your case may be held and you may be prosecuted as an adult. There are many benefits to keeping your case in the juvenile system versus the adult system. You’ll need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney to understand and decide how to proceed.
