Riverside Drug Crimes FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT DRUG CRIMES

Contact a Riverside Drug Crimes Attorney if you any additional questions.

What kinds of penalties result from a conviction?

Because of the severe attitude most law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges take in regards to drug crimes offenders, penalties resulting from a guilty conviction can be exceedingly harsh. While some drug crimes, such as possession, are considered misdemeanor offenses other more serious crimes such as trafficking or manufacturing are felony offenses with much steeper penalties. First time misdemeanor offenders are usually served with a light fine, mandatory probation, or community service. A felony conviction on the other hand could result in high monetary fines, license restrictions, and serious jail time. Even though misdemeanor penalties seem slight in comparison to those of felony charges, even a slight misdemeanor conviction will bring with it a criminal record that may make finding a good job, quality house, or receiving a bank loan exceedingly difficult.

Why do I need to hire a defense attorney?

Prosecutors vigorously pursue potential drug crimes offenders and judges are never very lenient when it comes to making a verdict. This unforgiving attitude towards drug related offenses makes it all too apparent that without a proper drug crimes defense attorney you will receive harsh if not the full penalties possible should you be convicted. Hiring a skilled defense attorney with a deep knowledge of the laws and circumstances surrounding drug crime cases will greatly increase your chances of receiving a favorable ruling. An experienced Riverside drug defense attorney will be able to negotiate on your behalf to have your charges reduced, your punishment lightened, and in some cases, your charges dismissed. Your future is too important to face these charges without the guidance and expertise of a qualified drug crimes defense attorney.
