Many clients of Rooney Law Firm have sought our representation and counsel after being charged with illegal sales of prescription drugs as well as with distribution of illegal "street" drugs including cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin and marijuana. As in any criminal defense case, the prosecutor must prove that a defendant is guilty as charged. Often, we are able to demonstrate that it cannot be proved that our client's possession of a drug — whether a prescription narcotic or another type of controlled substance — was intended for distribution to others.
Prosecutors sometimes attempt to use quantity as evidence that a defendant was planning to sell or otherwise distribute drugs to buyers. Or they cite as evidence the fact that a defendant had scales and plastic bags in his or her possession. Our defense lawyers, however, have challenged such allegations in many cases on the premise that the possessor had other motives for possession of scales and plastic bags in connection with personal use.
You may be eligible for dismissal of your California drug trafficking charges through participation in the deferred entry of judgment program after a first offense. If you fail to defend yourself, however, you could end up with a prison sentence and a criminal record. Your future and your freedom should not be left to chance. Contact a criminal defense lawyer with the reputation and track record of results that will give you confidence that your constitutional rights are being protected at every step.
Please note that our law firm handles federal marijuana-related criminal defense cases. Our attorneys are licensed to practice in any federal court.
The lead attorney of Rooney Law Firm has been named Criminal Defense Attorney of the Year every year since 2010 by the Chico News and Review.
