Defense for Drug Possession Charges in Orange County

Orange County Drug Crime Defense Attorney

Need a lawyer for drug possession in Orange County? Possession of illegal drugs can mean you are facing some serious charges. Even if you are found with a minor amount of marijuana in your car or pocket, without a prescription for medical marijuana use, you can find you are in a battle to protect your future and avoid a criminal record. Possession of most drugs is considered a misdemeanor in California. Although there is leniency in very small amounts of marijuana, once you are beyond the "threshold" amount, you can face penalties that include extensive jail or prison time.

It is assumed that you planned to sell the drug, and you will be facing possession with intent to sell charges even though your only interest was in personal use. After an arrest you may be in shock or feel overwhelmed by the idea of being prosecuted. It is very important that you discuss your situation with an Orange County criminal defense attorney right away in order to fully understand your options.
