Drug Possession with Intent
Riverside Drug Possession Defense Attorneys: (951) 682-5110
The Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act, also known as Proposition 36, permanently changed the way simple drug possession is handled in California. Since July, 2001, first- and second-time drug possession offenders are given the opportunity to receive substance abuse treatment instead of incarceration.
To learn if you qualify for the Prop 36 drug treatment option, contact our Riverside drug crime lawyers at Blumenthal & Moore in Riverside, California. We can review your case and advise you of all your options.
The Prop 36 treatment option is only for nonviolent, drug possession offenses. It does not extend to cultivation of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute, or possession while carrying a loaded and operable weapon.
Get answers to all of your questions during an initial case consultation at no charge.
Diligently Preparing Your Defense
Whether you are charged with simple possession or a more serious charge, the attorneys of Blumenthal & Moore are here to help.
In all drug-related charges, we can help you by:
- Scrutinizing whether police procedure was properly followed
- Evaluating whether your constitutional rights were violated
- Questioning whether you were the victim of an illegal search and seizure
- Working to get illegally obtained evidence thrown out
Even if you do not qualify for Prop 36, we can explore whether you may be eligible for Diversion, in which you plead guilty but are not sentenced. If you successfully complete a drug rehab or education program, you may avoid incarceration. No matter how serious the charges, you can rely on the attorneys of Blumenthal & Moore for aggressive criminal defense and personal client service.
