Drug Offense Lawyer in San Diego
Being charged with a drug related offense is a serious matter. In San Diego, drug offenses are highly prevalent given the proximity to the Mexican border. Law enforcement and prosecutors will try to make sure they are able to convict you of the crime you have been charged with. For this reason, it is important you speak will an attorney immediately after you have been charged.
The range of drug offenses is large, beginning at possession of a controlled substance all the way to drug trafficking. The drug crime you are charged with depends on various factors, including how much of a substance you are carrying, if any other paraphernalia is found, etc. Regardless of the drug crime you are being charged with, you could be required to serve serious prison time or pay substantial fines, or both.
