If you have been charged with selling or manufacturing illegal drugs, you are facing serious charges and harsh punishments if you are convicted. It is a felony crime to sell illegal narcotics in the state of California. It is also a felony to sell any other illegal controlled substance, such as methamphetamines, cocaine, LSD, ecstasy and more. If you have been charged with selling drugs in Palm Springs, contact a Palm Springs criminal defense attorney today. Attorney Rhea can help you fight your sales charges, so that you can possibly avoid conviction and the harsh punishments you may be facing.
If you are arrested for drug sales, unlike a misdemeanor possessions charge, you can be facing felony charges with serious penalties. Law enforcement officers will look at the type of drugs allegedly being sold, the amount of drugs, as well as the circumstances surrounding the arrest. There are more serious legal consequences in cases in which a minor was involved, or in cases in which state or national borders were crossed. This will determine the penalties you will be facing if you are convicted. Drug crime convictions of this nature can result in losing your driving privileges, registering as a narcotics offender, probation, parole, expensive monetary fines, and lengthy jail or prison terms. However, there are many viable defenses that can be used in your case, and experienced criminal defense attorney Joseph Rhea will be able to fight back against your charges in an effort to help you possibly avoid being convicted.
