Los Angeles Drug Sales Lawyer

Defense Against Drug Sale & Distribution Charges

Under California law it is illegal to sell or distribute any type of illegal drug, narcotic, or controlled substance, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, crystal meth, Ecstasy, etc. You can even face criminal prosecution for illegally selling or distributing a prescription drug or over-the-counter medication.

If you’ve been arrested for selling or distributing drugs in Los Angeles, you need to speak with an experienced drug crime defense attorney right away. Prosecutors and law enforcement officials take all drug charges extremely seriously, and will not hesitate to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. Without a well-practiced Los Angeles drug sale defense attorney defending you in court, you will have a difficult time fighting your charges and avoiding a criminal conviction.

Penalties For Drug Sale In California

While the sale or distribution of an illegal drug is always a felony, the penalties for a conviction depend on the type of drugs involved and the quantity of drugs. Furthermore, certain factors can also lead to enhanced penalties, such as:

  • Selling or distributing drugs to a minor
  • Selling or distributing drugs near a school or on a school campus
  • Involving minors in the sale or distribution of the drugs

If you’re found guilty of selling or distributing an illegal drug, narcotic, or controlled substance, you could be sentenced to up to 5 years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, probation, community service, and mandatory drug treatment. In addition, if you’re found guilty of the charges, you will be considered a convicted criminal, which will undoubtedly have a negative impact on your reputation and your future.
