Westlake Village Drug Charges Defense Attorney

About Drug Charges

Drug charges are a serious matter in California, with substantial consequences for those convicted. Certain activities that involve illegal substances can result in a drug charge. Some of the types of illegal substances include:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • LSD
  • PCP
  • Heroin
  • Crack
  • Ecstasy
  • Opiates
  • Prescription drugs

If you are caught in such activities as drug possession, drug use, sales, distribution, cultivation or trafficking in drugs with any of the above listed illegal substances, you can be arrested and charged with different drug charges, depending on the severity of the crime. The more drugs involved, the greater the penalty. Also, if you have prior convictions this could also cause you to be charged with a more serious crime.

Penalties can range from probation, community service or a small fine to harsh fines, mandatory drug rehabilitation, prison time and even forfeiture of property. Anyone with prior convictions could see the harsher penalties, even for a small amount of an illegal drug in your possession, as the criminal justice system frowns heavily on repeat offenders.

Vallens we are highly familiar with these types of cases and have helped numerous clients successfully fight their charges.
