Talk to a Bay Area drug possession attorney from the Law Offices of Shelley D. Dwyer as soon as possible. We can discuss your options relating to charges involving methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, or prescription drugs.

Consequences of a Drug Possession Conviction

The penalties for a drug possession conviction in California vary depending on the amount and type of the drug. Additional factors may also affect sentencing, including having a criminal history and firearm possession at the time of the arrest. Possible consequences of a drug possession conviction include fines, serious prison time, probation, and other penalties.

Alternatives to Traditional Penalties

One way to convince a judge of your sincerity about changing your ways is to enroll in a treatment program. Any harm you have done in conjunction with possession and use of drugs should be remedied wherever possible. Diversion programs such as deferred entry of judgment (DEJ) and Prop 36 are intended to address the root of your problem and keep a criminal conviction off your record.

Attorney Shelley D. Dwyer’s skills will benefit you from the moment you call, through negotiation and handling your case, to trial if that is in your best interest. Countless defenses are available in any trial, from search and seizure violations to simple lack of evidence.

By identifying creative approaches and thinking outside the box, attorney Shelley D. Dwyer often wins a wide variety of drug possession and criminal defense cases. Judges, juries, and even prosecutors can be convinced to see your side of the story. But you must have an attorney who focuses on criminal defense and has decades of practical experience, as Mrs. Dwyer does. Any sentence you receive should address your problems, not just punish you unfairly.
