Drug Crimes Providing Creative Solutions to Protect Your Future

Victorville Drug Crime Lawyer

Fighting to Keep You Out of Prison

Surprisingly, even though many states have been making cannabis legal, the outcry of the war against drugs has only increased, primarily because politicians are seeking to gain popularity by coming down hard on drug crimes. Therefore, the penalties for any crime related to drugs, whether of possession, sales, or trafficking, are much higher than the punishments for many other kinds of crimes.

If you have been accused of committing a drug crime, it is especially hard to fight because juries, law enforcement officials, and prosecutors tend to have a greater bias. This is why it is crucial that our Victorville drug crime attorney is at your side when you go to trial. You can rely on our team at Holistic Legal to offer you knowledgeable legal guidance.

Current Drug Laws & Penalties in the State of California

There are 3 primary classifications of drug crimes that are organized at the state level. Depending on the classification of your charge, you could face different lengths of jail time and different amounts of fines owed to the court.

These 3 main organizations of drug charges include:

  • Possessing a drug on your person or property for recreational or personal use
  • Being found to be under the influence or intoxication of a controlled substance
  • Being involved in selling, manufacturing, or transporting drugs

The first 2 classifications often end up being regarded as misdemeanors. Even though these leave a stained record and require a full year of being at the county jail, along with probation, such sentences are not as harsh as those given to defendants convicted of the third classification. If you have been found guilty of transporting, selling, or manufacturing any drugs, this counts as a felony, which has much harsher consequences depending on the type of drugs and the amount of drugs found on your person.

What are the Defenses Against Drug Crimes?

If you have been accused of a drug crime, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the serious situation you have found yourself in. Fortunately, our experienced attorney is skilled with using key strategies to defend your rights when you have been charged with this type of crime. For example, if you have a prescription, or have had some type of medical emergency or necessity that required the drug, then the charges against possession are altered. Moreover, many police officials are so eager to catch some culprit that they sometimes do not take the proper precautions or conduct the full process of investigation.

The Necessity of a Vigorous Defense

Without an aggressive Victorville drug crime lawyer, it is almost impossible to fight the charges of possession, sales, or trafficking of controlled substances. What is especially problematic is that even if the illegal substance was placed on your person or property by mistake, or was planted there by another party, many people tend to assume that you are the one at fault. This is why you need the determined support of our team at Holistic Legal to vigorously defend your rights.

    Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked at Bank of America, then started a sound and lighting business. During that time, I learned the most important thing was customer service and my clients. I feel like that is the one thing that can be missing in the legal profession. Having had my own negative experience with an attorney, I decided I wanted to make a change. I love people and that is why it is my goal to put the customers at the forefront of my practice.
