There are different laws that discuss the distribution or sale of controlled substances (drugs). A controlled substance is defined in California as a drug or chemical whose possession, manufacture and use are regulated under the United States Controlled Substances Act.
These drugs include:
The law prohibits the sale, transporting, giving away or otherwise supplying of controlled substances in any way. When a person is charged with a drug crime, it can sometimes carry severe consequences. If you have been charged with a drug crime including the sale of drugs, it is time to contact a Palmdale criminal defense attorney and find out what you should do next. Here at the Law Offices of David M. Wallin, we serve Palmdale, Lancaster and Victorville and are committed to doing whatever we can to ensure a winning outcome for our clients.
A person can be charged with “possession with intent” even when not caught in the actually act of selling drugs, for instance if they have large quantities of drugs in their possession or have drug paraphernalia
that may indicate an intent to sell. The charge for such a crime is much more serious than simple drug possession, so it is important to understand how the law applies to you.
If convicted of selling drugs, the penalties could include probation, up to one year in a county jail, or a fine of up to $20,000. Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, it may also be punishable with
a prison sentence of up to 9 years or more. Finding out that you are facing drug sale charges can be a stressful time and having a competent drug crime defense attorney at your side to guide you through the process can help alleviate your fears.
