Penalties for Drug Distribution in Long Beach
Drug distribution is a felony offense that carries extreme penalties. Drug
distribution or trafficking charges must be aggressively defended by a
legal professional that has a proven record at trial. The penalties for
drug distribution will depend on certain factors that include:
- The type of drug you in the case;
- The quantity of the substance;
- The location of the alleged offense.
- The scale of the alleged drug sales operation.
- Your criminal record.
In our state the possession of marijuana has been decriminalized. Unlawful
distribution is still a heavily penalized drug crime. The penalty for
any person accused of involvement in a conspiracy to distribute drugs
could face up to 20 years in prison, thousands in fines, and forfeiture
of property, based upon the scale of the alleged drug distribution operation.
Any person involved in this type of operation can face felony charges
for drug distribution, even if it was in a minor capacity. The prosecution
will be required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you had possession
of the substance, and that there was intent to sell. The presence of various
types of paraphernalia such as weigh scales, cash or other materials could
also be used as evidence against you.
Law enforcement can overstep the bounds of the law in a drug bust, and
could have violated your rights in search and seizure. You may have merely
been in the wrong place at the wrong time, or other situation that led
to an arrest. If you are accused of drug distribution,
contact us immediately. We work as a team to develop a powerful defense case. We
