Hire a Fresno criminal attorney and discuss your options with him. Most attorneys offer a free initial consultation. In the meantime, I suggest you enroll yourself in an outpatient drug program or at least go to NA 4x/week. This shows effort on your part and the court will treat you accordingly. Good luck
Just because you have prior drug offenses doesn't mean you don't have a defense. If you are able to hire an attorney, you should set up an appointment with someone to discuss your possible defenses/options based on the facts in your case. If you are not able to hire an attorney, one will be appointed to you at your first court date.
