Rancho Cucamonga Drug Crime Attorney
Legal Counsel in Rancho Cucamonga & Pomona
The state of California separates all drug crimes into two categories -
simple possession and possession with the intent to distribute. Within
these classifications, the possession of marijuana is handled differently
than the possession of other controlled substances. Likewise, drug crimes
related to the possession of phencyclidine (PCP) or methamphetamine are
also charged differently. Sentencing for a drug crime conviction in Rancho
Cucamonga depends on the type of drug, the amount in possession, and the
intent for which it was to be used. Possessing the ingredients necessary
to manufacture illegal drugs can also be charged as a crime.
Examples of illegal controlled substances include:
- Marijuana or cannabis
Because there are so many variables related to drug charges in California,
it is important to contact a Rancho Cucamonga drug crime lawyer with
criminal defense experience. Even a basic conviction for the possession of marijuana can
result in a 10-day jail sentence and a $500 fine. The intent to distribute
bumps the charge up to a felony and can extend the length of incarceration
up to 3 years. Selling or delivering marijuana to a minor under the age
of 14 can result in up to 7 years in prison.
