Drug Arrests Are Not All Equal

Posted over 2 years ago. Applies to California, 1 helpful vote


When it comes to selling, growing, manufacturing or transporting drugs, the cases are charged as felonies and the penalties are massive. Fortunately, under Health & Safety Code 11350, drug diversion is an option for many cases that involve only drug possession.

The prosecution will be fighting to make sure that you receive the maximum penalty. With a strong legal advocate on your side, you can challenge the prosecution and make sure that justice is served in your matter. You may be able to get your case dismissed, work out an excellent plea bargain, or be acquitted after trial.
