Types of California Alcohol and Drugs Crimes Charges
There are numerous charges involving drug crimes in California that include but are not limited to:
- Driving under the influence;
- Open container;
- Furnishing alcohol to a minor;
- Possession of drug paraphernalia;
- Possession with intent to sell;
- Possession of a controlled substance;
- Selling of a controlled substance; or
- Transportation of a controlled substance.
The punishments for these crimes in the state of California range from misdemeanor to felony, which means the sentence range as well and could include fines up to $10,000.00 or imprisonment for up to 10 years. Your prior criminal record and if you have been convicted of a drug crime before also can play a role in the significance of your sentence. Whether it is your first offense or not, it is important to have an attorney who can explain the potential consequences of being charged with the crime.
Additionally, some California drug crimes can be charged together, which add to the length of the sentence and the amount of the fine. An example of this includes possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia or driving under the influence and open container. There are sometimes instances where a charge can be dropped or lessened, or just one charge be kept with the other dropped, but it is important to have an attorney who knows how to navigate the criminal justice system and how to take those actions.
If you or someone you know has been charged with a felony or misdemeanor drug crime in California, it is important to speak to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. The more time we have to work on your case, the more we can provide you the best possible defense.
Beating California Alcohol and Drugs Crimes Charges
Depending on the charges you face, we can frame a defense around the drugs being in someone else’s possession or that the drugs belonged to someone else. We can also look at the aspects of your arrest or citation, such as if the police illegally searched your belongings, or that the police did not have probable cause to search you or your property. We will do everything that we can to get your charges dropped, reduced, or get your sentenced reduced. While getting acquitted, having your charge reduced, or getting your sentence reduced are all options, those options require a thorough understanding of the law.
Even as an individual facing criminal charges you have rights, and it is important to know those rights and make sure that they were not violated in any way when you were arrested or charged. Without extensive knowledge of your rights when it comes to police searches, Miranda rights, and your rights when it comes to arrest, it is extremely difficult to get a dismissal, or reduction. Do not try and fight these charges on your own, Weber Law is ready to help you today.
