Drug Crimes Lawyer in Solano County
Have you been charged with a drug crime?
Drug crimes involve a large variety of offenses in the State of California. The penalties range from misdemeanors to felonies. At times, drug crimes will be combined with offenses such as theft crimes,
juvenile crimes and others. At Petty and Warshawsky, Attorneys at Law, we can assist you in the defense of any drug related charges. It is, however, vital that an experienced criminal defense attorney be retained quickly when you are charged to help ensure the best possible outcome in your case.
Our firm will aggressively fight for your rights in such cases as:
- Possession of an illegal drug or any sort of controlled substance
- Possession with the intent to deliver or sell
- Drug manufacturing
- Cultivation of marijuana (the growing, producing and processing of the plant itself)
- The sale of controlled substances
- Drug importation or transportation
- Prescription fraud
Penalties for Drug Crimes
The penalties that you face depend on exactly what you are charged with. You may lose your driving privileges, have to pay stiff fines and serve long jail or prison sentences. In some cases, authorities will take possession of your money and property. If you have prior convictions the penalties will be harsher. Offenses such as cultivation can become federal crimes which increase the fines and imprisonment that are dealt out. A crime such as the transport of drugs from one county to another in our state can result in a 9-year prison sentence.
Fortunately, there are effective strategies to combat the charges that you face. Illegal search or
seizure by the police can cause the evidence against you to be inadmissible in court. Sometimes, a person is accused of possessing drugs that were not, in fact, theirs. Poorly done or improper investigation by authorities can result in insufficient evidence to prove the crime you are accused of. The key to success is proper investigation and preparation of your case.
