Sale of Illegal Drugs

Retain a Drug Defense Lawyer in Temecula, CA

Illegal and controlled drugs include a wide variety of substances, and it is crucial that you understand the ramifications for abuse of any of these products. Not all drug crimes involve substances commonly known to be dangerous, such as heroin, meth or cocaine; even prescription medications can be the basis for drug crime charges if you do not have a valid permit or prescription to be in possession of the substances. Regardless of the circumstances of your case, it is crucial that you have skillful representation on your side when facing drug crime charges of any kind.

According to California Health & Safety Code §11352, it is illegal to sell, trade, or otherwise distribute controlled substances. If you are convicted of this crime, then you will face felony penalties of up to 5 years in prison and up to $20,000 in fines. It is important to know that there are also various aggravating circumstances that can result in increased penalties.

For example, if you are charged with drug trafficking near a school or if you are charged with mass sales involving specific dangerous drugs, then you will face aggravated penalties. If you have been convicted of a felony drug crime in the past that does not involve the personal use of drugs, then you could face an additional consecutive three-year prison sentence for each prior felony.
