Drug Possession Lawyer in Rancho Cucamonga

Penalties of Drug Possession

Being charged with a drug crime in California can have very harsh consequences. For a first offense, the possession of a controlled substance may result in a penalty of imprisonment for up to a year. You could also be fined up to $1,000 and may be ordered to perform community service. For any subsequent possession charges, the fines are more extensive and the terms of imprisonment are longer. If you are charged with possession with the intent to sell, you could face as much as a 5-year prison sentence and other serious penalties.

There are many factors that comprise a possession charge. The type of drug and quantity discovered are also taken into account. The location you are in also makes a difference (near a school, playground, etc.), as well as if there were any minors involved in your drug charge. A competent Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense attorney will be able to review all the facts surrounding your case and answer any questions you may have. Do not delay in retaining a lawyer to help you outline a forceful defense for the charges filed against you.
