Penalties for Drug Crimes in California
Unlike many other kinds of criminal charges, drug crimes are not straightforward when it comes to the assigned penalties. A conviction could result in severe sentences or a lighter punishment, all depending on the judicial decision. The kind of drug, the amount, and the purpose of the drug’s use, whether for personal possession or trafficking, all affect the kind of conviction. Moreover, the defendant’s criminal history and past records can also affect the length of time a penalty will last.
In general, however, drug crimes tend to be treated particularly seriously in Los Angeles. Just some of the kinds of penalties that can result include jail or imprisonment time, hefty fines, court restitution, extensive parole time, and fees paid to law officers for investigative counseling. You may also need to take mandatory classes and counseling, and you will have a stained criminal record. You can even have your driver’s license taken away if you are convicted.
The Crucial Need for Powerful Advocacy
Of all crimes to be accused of, drug crimes tend to result in some of the harshest sentencing. This is because there are already so many cases in our city, and eventually both judges and juries have tended to automatically assume a negative bias even before they hear a defendant’s side. A guilty verdict could dramatically affect the rest of your life, which is why it is essential to get in touch with Vadgama Law as soon as you can.
