How We Can Defend Your Drug Charge
As our firm defends your case, there are many steps that we can take to ensure that all bases for the best defense possible have been covered.
Here are some possible defenses:
- The narcotics officer associated with your case may have performed an action outside of the set procedure which led to a false charge.
- As we perform a thorough investigation, we can determine whether the police officer ignored constitutional search and seizure laws, violated California's entrapment laws, or made an arrest without adequate evidence.
- We may be able to prove that the drugs were not yours.
In California, we have a program called Pretrial Diversion (PC 1,000), which was created an incentive for drug offenders to attend rehabilitation. This can be an excellent choice for people who do not want to take their case to trial. The program has several parts that must be completed by the offender, after which, the case will be dismissed as if it never happened.
Prerequisites for Pretrial Diversion:
- You must not have been convicted of a crime in the last five years that is not eligible for Pretrial Diversion under PC 1,000.
- The crime that you are charged with cannot be a violent crime.
- There can't be any evidence that you were committing a more serious crime such as selling drugs.
- You cannot have any felony convictions in the last 5 years.
Requirements for completion of Pretrial Diversion:
- Restitution of $100-1,000
- Passing Regular Drug tests
- Attending substance abuse treatment
- Not being convicted of another crime throughout the program (12-18 months)
We provide the knowledge and experience necessary to assess and exploit problems with the prosecution's case. Our lawyers tailor our defenses to your case and build strong defense tactics based on your specific situation.
