Drug Possession in Sacramento
Have you been arrested for possession of drugs?
Drug possession is a common, yet serious charge that occurs when an individual, through identification or investigation, is found to be in possession of an illegal drug such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, prescription medication, hallucinogens and many others. The penalties for a possession conviction may vary widely depending on a number of different factors, and it is important to enlist the trusted services of a veteran Sacramento criminal defense lawyer who knows how to fight for your needs in court.
The penalties associated with drug possession convictions can range greatly depending on the quantity of drug as well as the type. Drugs are broken up into different Schedules, with Schedule I being the most severe and including substances like heroin and LSD, while the least severe Schedule V substances include low-risk medicines like codeine. While any amount of any drug will warrant some charge and appropriate conviction, Schedule I drugs possessed in large quantities will most certainly receive the greatest financial penalties and long-term prison sentences in situations where an individual is found to be guilty.
