The legal team at San Diego Defense Lawyers has extensive experience in defending such cases in every courthouse in San Diego County.

Authorities have made drug offenses one of their top priorities and devote an enormous amount of their resources to prosecuting such cases. In all drug charges you face a jail or prison term, fine, probation, subjection to drug testing, drug education classes, drug treatment programs, loss of your driver’s or business license and the possibility of the forfeiture of some of your assets. A criminal record for a drug crime conviction also carries a negative stigma that can affect your employment opportunities and require you to fulfill certain legal obligations even after you have served any sentence imposed upon you.
Drug crimes once were mostly committed by the young, often out of experimentation or defiance of authority, but now the spectrum of drug abuse runs the gamut from pre-teens to senior citizens.

It may be possible to prove that police violated the law by conducting what is known as an “illegal search and seizure,” which means that they did not have a required search warrant or other legitimate reason to seize the drugs that may be involved in your case. There may have been an improper link in what is called “the chain of custody” involving the evidence. There is also the possibility – given the circumstances of your case – that you may be eligible for a drug diversion program, in which charges could be suspended and eventually dismissed upon successful completion of certain legal requirements.
