The penalties for drug possession and drug sales can be quite serious in the state of California. Consequences for a conviction can include:
- Incarceration in the county jail or state prison.
- Thousands of dollars in fines.
- Mandatory prison terms imposed if future drug convictions.
- Mandatory drug testing and counseling.
If you are charged with drug possession or sales, you will benefit from having a experienced attorney review your case. Certain types of drugs mandate felony filing, and an attorney can often have the charges reduced to misdemeanor offenses. It is also possible to have the charges dismissed and expunged from ones record if the person completes certain drug classes.
