Experienced Narcotics Violation Lawyer serving Vista, Oceanside, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido, and greater San Diego County.
An experienced Vista Narcotics Violation Lawyer knows that the laws concerning drug offenses are ever changing. Punishment for drug sales and manufacturing are becoming increasingly severe. Lengthy prison terms are common. Simple possession, on the other hand, is seeing a trend towards rehabilitation and treatment. Under the current law, you may be eligible for a treatment program without serving time in custody, even if you have a lengthy record or prior offenses.
Most often these cases involve a search of a residence, person, or vehicle, which may create many complex search issues under the 4th Amendment. If the search conducted by law enforcement was not legally and properly conducted, the proper legal motions may result in a dismissal of charges.
