Recent years have seen a heightened attention to - and an increase in - the prosecution and penalties for drug offenses. In light of California's three strike law, for example, mere possession of a controlled substance can carry the possibility of a sentence of 25 years to life.
Even absent any concern over three strike implications, individuals charged with possession of opiates, narcotics, heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine, ecstasy or any drug that has not been prescribed to you by a doctor is against the law. If you are arrested or charged with any drug offense in California you can face severe consequences that could ruin your life.
If you have been arrested on a drug charge, getting out on bail is imperative to preparing for a defense to avoid jail time or getting a reduced sentence. Defendants can contest whether there was probable cause to make an arrest and whether specific procedures were followed in making the arrest. The court's decision on whether a drug offense is charged as a felony or a misdemeanor depends on the type of drug charge, the amount found in the defendant's drug possession and the defendant's record.
