Rancho Cucamonga Drug Crimes Lawyer

Drug Crimes in California

California Health and Safety Code Section 11350-11356.5 categorize the act of possessing, intention to sell, selling, and transporting controlled substances and drugs as a criminal act. If you or your loved one has been charged with a drug crime, it is important that you seek legal representation. Drug charges can carry damaging consequences that can follow you around.

The well documented adverse effect of drugs on users and their families has led to a strong effort on the part of state and federal authorities to crack down on all aspects of the drug trade. If you have been charged with a drug crime, you will face prosecutors who are motivated to get a conviction.

At Chung & Ignacio, LLP, we have the experience which illustrates that you will need an equally motivated attorney to come to your defense. An aggressive and knowledgeable Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense attorney will understand the laws pertaining to drug charges and the best possible strategies to fight against them.

What are the penalties for drug crimes?

Depending on the circumstances of your case, drug charges can sometimes be dismissed. If a conviction is unavoidable, we can use our experience as negotiators to work towards reducing the penalties you will face. One key to a successful defense is thorough investigation into the specifics of your situation and the arrest that followed. At times, it can be shown that you were not actually in possession of the drugs and they weren't yours. The laws governing search and seizure of your property may have been violated. Police procedure and rules of evidence may have been sloppily handled and this can be used on your behalf.

The penalties for drugs crimes go from a simple misdemeanor up to felony charges. Your cash and property may be seized by authorities. Loss of your driver's license, large fines and lengthy jail or prison sentences may be the result of a conviction on drug crimes charges. If your charges involve a minor or if you have had prior convictions, the penalties will be harsher. With so much at stake, we feel it is vital to give yourself the best chance possible for a successful outcome to your case.
