Have You Been Charged With A Crime Involving Cocaine, Meth, Heroin, Marijuana Or Prescription Medications?
I can help! I previously worked as a prosecutor in Sacramento County and handled several types of drug crime cases. I can also assist in cases involving federal drug cases. My experience prosecuting these crimes gives me special insight in how a case evolves. I will effectively break down the case, element by element, to determine the best strategy for you. The result is that your rights will be protected at every step of the way regardless of whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony, or the type of substance involved.
I offer comprehensive defense strategies for cases involving possession or sales. By working together, we’ll try to find a solution to get the case dismissed at the outset. If that is not possible, I’ll aggressively negotiate on your behalf to make sure you don’t have to spend time in jail.
Most Sacramento area drug cases begin with a search and seizure which occurs subsequent to a traffic ticket or domestic violence investigation. Due this, drug charges often provide fertile ground for arguing 4th Amendment violations. A successful Fourth Amendment argument means that the prosecution will have to throw out the evidence of the illegal substance and therefore will not be able to use it against you at trial. I’ll put my critical thinking skills to use to find out if the police engaged in an unlawful search and seizure.
If you have an controllable problem with drugs, I’ll also make sure that the prosecutor and court takes this into consideration. I’ll attempt to create a comprehensive solution to the case which involves you getting the treatment you need instead of wasting away in a jail cell. Drug crimes don’t have to ruin your life!
Drug Offenses On Sacramento Area Campuses
Unfortunately, college students are often targeted by law enforcement agencies for recreational drug use. Although most students are not hardened drug addicts, they can be charged in a manner that makes it appear so.
Students have a lot to lose when it comes to getting a drug conviction on their record. Thus, it’s important to hire a knowledgeable attorney to minimize the effect of such a charge, and to preserve the student’s ability to gain suitable employment in the future.
I have experience dealing with the special circumstances revolving around a student or campus related drug arrest. I’ll do everything I can to make sure that a young person’s bad decision to experiment with drugs doesn’t unfairly mark them for life.
Whether you attend U.C. Davis, Sac State, or one of the various community colleges (such as the Los Rios Community Colleges), I will advocate for a fair resolution or complete dismissal of drug charges levied by campus police.
