CRIMINAL LAW DRUG CRIMES
If you have been accused of a controlled substance offense (drug offense), you may be eligible to participate in treatment and rehabilitation programs, such as diversion, DEJ (deferred entry of judgment), or Prop 36, rather than jail or prison. You need an attorney to fight for your eligibility to receive treatment rather than to serve jail or prison time.
Our office has handled many types of drug offenses ranging from simple possession to transportation and sales. We have successfully negotiated for rehabilitation and treatment for many of our clients, even those who were presumptively ineligible for such treatment.
For example, our office has negotiated successfully for probation in a marijuana transportation and sales case involving in excess of 300 pounds of marijuana. We have beat major cocaine and ecstasy cases, and kept numerous marijuana cultivators out of jail.
