Drug Charges & Penalties
If you have been charged with a misdemeanor drug offense, you could be facing up to 6 month in jail. A felony drug offense is punishable by up to 3 years in jail. Both misdemeanor and felony drug offense carry the potential of a permanent criminal record. If you are arrested or questioned by police, it is important to exercise your right to an attorney before speaking to law enforcement officers to ensure that your rights are protected during questioning.
We represent clients facing charges for:
- Drug possession
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to sell
- Drug trafficking
- Transportation of a controlled substance for sale
- Sale of a controlled substance to a minor
Drug crime convictions may result in severe penalties, including jail or prison sentences, large fines, and other consequences. Whenever possible, we seek to have clients sentenced to drug rehabilitation, rather than jail time. Because each situation is unique, we recommend scheduling a consultation to get advice for your specific circumstances.
Evaluating Your Arrest
Our Redwood City drug crime lawyer will carefully evaluate your case and how evidence was gathered to look for any possible mistakes by law enforcement officers. For example, narcotics officers often fail to follow proper rules for search and seizure, engage in entrapment, exaggerate in police reports, or sidestep other laws in gathering evidence and making arrests. We make sure your rights are protected throughout the legal process.
