Drug Crimes in California
Drug offenses are some of the most commonly charged crimes here in California. These charges can be considered a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the criminal history of the defendant, the type of controlled substance involved, the volume of controlled substance involved, and other details from the arrest.
Some examples of drug crimes or narcotic offenses include:
- Unlawful possession of a marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, etc.
- Unlawful possession of prescription drugs
- Possession for sale
- Distribution of illegal drugs
- Transportation of illegal drugs
- Manufacturing of illegal drugs
There are also enhancements which can severely increase the time you could be sent to state prison if you are convicted of these types of charges, such as also being in possession of a firearm or gun, having a large amount of the illegal substance, etc.
Choosing Your Defense Counsel
Our office is very familiar with how law enforcement is going to try to paint the picture of you through the use of their “experts”. They will look at several factors in the way the narcotics were recovered; they will use tools such as wiretaps to investigate and listen to your conversations. Having been a former deputy district attorney, Mr. Geller knows how to properly handle and defend you in these cases. Choose a drug crimes defense lawyer with the knowledge and experience to fight for you, all the way.
It is critical that you start exploring your legal options as soon as possible.
