Fresno-Clovis Drug Possession Lawyers
Valley Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys
California leads the nation for arrests of individuals possessing a controlled or illegal substance. A controlled substance is defined as illegal drugs that are classified by the US government as being dangerous. According to the California Department of Corrections, of 160,000 prisoners, 20,000 are in jail or prison due to a drug offense. Drug possession typically goes hand in hand with drug sales. Drugs typically found in possession and/or sold on the street are: cocaine, methamphetamine, PCP, marijuana, heroin, LSD and ecstasy.
Oftentimes, if drugs are found in your possession you may be charged by law enforcement with drug sales (possession with intent to sell) as well, even if the drugs were not for sale but for your own personal use. The differences in the charges that can be brought against you for drug crimes are usually extreme. You could be looking at a virtual slap on the wrist or a lifetime imprisonment. Penalties for a drug charge are based on the type and amount of drug in your possession, intent to sell, or distribute, your past criminal history and the circumstances surrounding your case.
