Drug related crimes

Possible Consequences

Many drug charges carry with it a lengthy and serious consequences, including the possibility of jail time. There are many drug charges that can be felonies or misdemeanors. Some drug related offenses are drug sales, possession, manufacture, under the influence, or possession of paraphernalia.

Issues with drug cases

There are many issues with drug charges that only an experienced attorney will consider. Many of these issues include whether the drugs that officers seized were a result of a violation of your constitutional rights. Just because you live in an area that is filled with drugs or looked “nervous” does not mean that the police had a good reason to search you or your body. As a result, the evidence may be suppressed and cannot be used against you in trial.

What is diversion?

With the help of a skillful attorney, some people who are accused of a drug crime may be eligible for a diversion program (PC1000 or Prop 36). These are deferred entries of judgment where candidates who sucessfully complete the program are eligible to have their case dismissed.

Diversions may also be referred to as a “deferred” entry of judgment. Those who complete it have their case dismissed after 18 months. If you are interested in seeing whether you are eligible for diversion, consult with an attorney from our office today.

Even if you are not eligible for diversion, there may still be alternative programs and rehabilitation out there that can help you stay out of jail. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Lisa Wong are experienced with drug-related offenses and can let you know what programs you qualify for and discuss what your best options are.
