Don’t Let A Drug Charge Ruin Your Future
When facing drug charges, many people don’t understand their rights or the full consequences of a drug conviction. Having experienced representation during this time is crucial. The Law Office of W. Gregory Klein has been helping clients throughout California for over 25 years.
We understand the severity of these charges and we can explain the law and your potential options for fighting the charges. We help you make informed decisions and participate meaningfully in your own defense. We work to minimize the long-term effects on your life and your future.
The Consequences Of A Drug Arrest
If you are convicted of a drug crime, it can affect your reputation, your career and your family. It all depends on the type of drug, how much of it police find and why they suspect you had it. Possession is considered a misdemeanor, and you could face up to one year in jail. Drug trafficking and distribution carry much more severe sentences. You could be facing up to four years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000. Federal trafficking charges can lead to very long prison sentences and massive fines.
Prosecutors often stack other charges, such as conspiracy, firearms possession and virtually any other criminal offense, which can cause a seemingly minor set of facts to explode to decades or the equivalent of life in prison. Prosecutors use these incredible sentences to pressure the accused into accepting their terms in a plea deal. Our attorney recognizes these tactics and works to prevent or minimize these strategies.
Our attorney has decades of experience handling criminal charges involving a wide spectrum of drugs, including:
- Oxycontin (oxycodone)
- Prescription drugs
Complications Of Marijuana Possession
It is important to mention Proposition 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act. For any adult 21 and over, you may purchase, possess and consume up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and 8 grams of concentrated marijuana. You are also allowed to grow up to 6 cannabis plants, but farms need to be licensed by the state. This can only happen in your own residence, as it is still illegal when found in a vehicle or a public place. Our attorney can help if you have been entangled in these types of charges.
