Temecula Drug Manufacturing Lawyer

California Health & Safety Code §11379.6

It is a criminal offense to manufacture, compound, convert, produce, derive, process or prepare any controlled substance. All of these, whether done directly or indirectly, fall under the drug crime of manufacturing.

  • Manufacturing drugs listed in Schedule I, II, III, IV and V is punishable with:
  • Imprisonment for three, five, or seven years; and
  • Fine not to exceed $50,000.

In some cases, this crime can be aggravated. For example, if it can be proven that the defendant was manufacturing methamphetamine or phencyclidine in a structure where a child 16-years-old or younger was present, it would be punishable with an additional two years spent in state prison. If that same child suffered great bodily injury during the commission of the act, it would be an additional five years in state prison.

Defending Against Charges of Manufacturing Drugs

Just because you have been criminally charged with manufacturing drugs, however, does not mean that you will be convicted. There are several defenses that can be advanced on your behalf to help protect your legal rights. For example, it could be argued that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time and had nothing to do with the manufacturing, or that it is a case of mistaken identity. It can also be argued that any evidence gathered was done through an illegal search and seizure, which violated your constitutional rights.
