What is the legal process for a misdemeanor drug crime in Manhattan?

Oftentimes possession of a misdemeanor amount of drugs leads to a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) being issued. In this situation, the arresting officer takes the individual accused of possession to the police station to run a record check. If the individual has no active warrants and no criminal record, they are usually given a DAT listing a court appearance date and are then released.

If you have been given a DAT or charged with drug possession, contact New York City drug crimes attorney Paul D. Petrus, Jr. at 212-564-2440 for a free consultation.
