Drug Crime Attorney for Ventura

Charged for a drug crime in Oxnard? Call (877) 378-6147

Drug crimes of any type are considered very serious in Ventura County and throughout California, with even minor offenses carrying significant penalties. Drug crimes can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the related factors. In more serious cases, they may even be taken on by the federal government. Some of the main factors that are considered in a case include the type of drug found, the amount of it that is present and the type of illegal activity a suspect is accused of.

Illegal Drug Related Activity

Examples of drug offenses include:

  • Possession
  • Possession of paraphernalia
  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute
  • Sales
  • Distribution
  • Trafficking
  • Cultivation/manufacturing

Prosecutors in drug cases can be counted on to pursue convictions vigorously. They may use an array of methods in gathering evidence against you, including wiretaps, surveillance, and even confidential informants. If you are to have a strong chance of beating your charges, you need the help of an experienced attorney who can aggressively challenge the prosecution's case against you.

Penalizing a Drug Crime

Lesser amounts of drugs may fall under the misdemeanor category; however, even these charges can come with harmful results. A felony conviction can literally damage the life of an individual, leaving them with a prison sentence, fines, probation, rehabilitation and more. In general, possession charges will be penalized the least with crimes such as trafficking or selling coming at a higher cost. Not all drugs are considered to be as dangerous as others and more serious forms, such as heroin or meth can be prosecuted more severely.
