San Jose Drug Crime Lawyer
Were you accused of a drug crime?
California drug offenses can result in a misdemeanor or felony charge. Drug charges are not taken lightly and a first offense alone can result in a lengthy jail sentence. If you, however, do not have a prior criminal record, there may be alternatives to serving jail time or having a mark put on your record. By hiring a strong legal advocate, we can tell if you may qualify for an alternative sentence rather than have to spend time behind bars. For example, the drug diversion program could be an option for a minor who was convicted of a drug crime. Instead of going to jail, they instead get to go through treatment in order to help them get back on their feet.
