Course: Introduction / Criminal Law
Constructive possession is the legal doctrine of a person being in possession of an object even when they were not in actual physical control of the object at the time.
This rule applies in situations such as when an object is hidden away. The law requires the person to be aware of the object, and that the person has the ability to regain physical control of it.
