Los Angeles Drug Attorneys Handling Possession For Sale Cases

Health and Safety Code 11351 HS

If you or a loved one has been arrested or faces drug sales charges in California, stop and think for a minute. Time is NOT on your side. The next move you make can mean the difference between being able to live life on your terms and living under the watchful eye of law enforcement or the prison system. It can mean the difference between being able to make a living and having your professional license or driver’s license revoked. It can even prevent you from getting a job, getting admitted into college, or even renting an apartment.

What Are the Penalties for a Drug Possession Conviction?

In California, a drug possession for sales conviction can carry severe penalties, such as:

  • Years if not decades in prison depending on the amount of narcotics.
  • A fine of up to $20,000.

Drug Possession for Sale Defenses

Examples of the defenses we may use in your drug sales case include:

  • The police planted evidence.
  • The police didn’t have probable cause.
  • Illegal search and seizure.
  • The police used entrapment.
  • The police couldn’t clearly see the transaction from their stakeout position.
  • You didn’t know you had the drug.
  • The police arrested the wrong person.
  • You had the drugs for personal use, and NOT for sales.

Without an aggressive Los Angeles drug possession attorney fighting for you, your conviction could result in the end of your life as you know it. The LAST thing you need is a drug sales conviction on your record, as this will permanently tarnish your reputation and impact your entire future.

Often times, we can stop police investigations before you EVER get charged with a crime. (If you have NOT been formally charged, but you are being accused and/or investigated, read more about how we get involved with pre-file investigations.) Remember, do NOT speak to police, investigators, or detectives about your case. Anything you tell them CAN be used against you in a court of law. Prosecutors WILL NOT BE LENIENT with you because you’re “being nice.” It doesn’t work that way.
