The California Health and Safety Code makes it illegal to be in possession of many drugs, including, but not limited to, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana. It is also illegal to manufacture or sell these drugs, be in possession of these drugs with the intent to sell them, or even in possession of indicia common to those conducting a drug sales business. It is also illegal to be under the influence of various drugs, even if you do not have any of the drugs in your immediate possession.
At Jackson Law, we have successfully handled many cases where our clients were permitted to attend a residential treatment program rather than serving time in jail or prison. If you are being investigated, or have been charged, with a drug related offense, it is imperative that you contact an attorney right away to ensure your rights are adequately protected. We will handle all aspects of your case, including a thorough review of all police reports, videotapes and audio tapes as well as a thorough evaluation of the manner in which the drugs were located by the police. Often, drugs are found during a search of your car or your person. On occasion, the police illegally perform these searches and we can file a motion pursuant to Penal Code section 1538.5 to have the case dismissed. The attorneys at Jackson Law have drafted and argued many such motions; resulting in even serious cases being dismissed in their entirety.
If you are being investigated for a criminal offense, or have been charged with a criminal offense, and want to know how to best proceed, please contact the attorneys at Jackson Law online or call Jackson Law at 650-587-8556.
