Drug Crimes in Fresno

California may appear to be lenient on drug crimes in the wake of its legalization of recreational marijuana, however, the state has established strict laws on the sale of marijuana by licensed distributors. Inexplicably, marijuana remains illegal under federal law as a Schedule I controlled substances, the scheduling category for purportedly the most dangerous and serious controlled substance. Possession of other illegal drugs under state and federal law are also tightly controlled and aggressively pursued by prosecutors. All drug related crimes are serious matters that call for a proven and experienced attorney.

Federal drug crimes may be investigated and charged by such agencies as the DEA, FBI and ICE. They can involve lengthy and intensive investigations seeking evidence that will lead to a conviction in federal court that carries mandatory minimum prison sentences.

State and federal drug crimes can include:

  • Simple possession for personal use
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Drug sales and/or distribution
  • Drug manufacturing as in the case of meth labs
  • Drug cultivation as in the case of marijuana grows in homes, farms, forests, and national parks
  • Conspiracy
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

In illegal drug cases, you may face multiple charges depending on the circumstances in which drugs were found. Charges will depend on the quantity of drugs found in your possession, what schedule the drugs fall under, and your prior criminal history, if any. Aggravating factors can enhance the charges or sentencing in any case as well. These factors can include violent conduct during the crime, and whether firearms or minors were involved in the offense.

Drug Diversion Programs

Drug treatment is a pretrial release or sentencing option for federal and state courts depending on the circumstances. In California, Penal Code 1000 makes drug diversion available to eligible defendants. Under the program, charges are dismissed if you successfully attend and complete drug treatment. Offenses that may qualify you for such a program include possession of controlled substances, possession of certain sedatives, possession of drug paraphernalia, and other specific crimes. Having an experienced attorney on your side can be invaluable in seeking drug or alcohol treatment in lieu of jail or prison time and other consequences.
