Roommates and Constructive Possession: A Potential Defense to Drug Charges in Indiana
Were you arrested after marijuana or prescription drugs were found in a common area of your dorm or home? If you have a roommate, the State must prove you had constructive possession of the drug in order to convict you. Evidence that might infer constructive possession could include where the drug was found. Was it in plain view? Was it within close proximity to your property? Did you make any incriminating statements? The answers to these questions could be used to attack the evidence against you.
