Drug Sale Crimes in California

Take Charge of Your Future with a Long Beach Drug Defense Attorney

Passing along, distributing, or holding an illegal drug with the intent to make a monetary gain are all considered drug sale crimes in California. Even if you never sold an ounce of an illicit substance, you could be tried for conspiracy to sell it, which carries the same high penalties as the actual act. At the Law Office of Peacock & Le Beau, our drug crime defense lawyers have been standing up for the rights of the accused in Long Beach for years. The most important thing you can do if you have been arrested on drug sale charges is to complete a free case evaluation from our firm today. With our help, we can begin analyzing your case and decide on the best way to get you the protection you deserve.

You Could Be Facing Strict Punishments for Drug Sale Crimes

In most cases, drug sale crimes are considered a felony, even if scant amounts were being sold. A few ounces of cannabis, painkillers, or antidepressants could qualify as a class A misdemeanor but these conditions are rare. Generally, if you are convicted of a drug sale crime, you will be facing at least a $2500 fine and up to a 30 year prison sentence. In extreme cases or if this is not your first offense, penalties could easily be doubled in severity.
