a controlled substance in their possession and there is some evidence

evidence. Penalties for a crime of this type can be very serious, depending

The Importance of Hiring a San Diego Criminal Defense Lawyer
As with any drug crime, the seriousness of charges for possession with
intent to sell is influenced by several factors including what amount
of drugs were involved, the accused person's existing criminal record
and whether there were weapons involved. Certain illegal substances have
much more severe penalties, including heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and methamphetamines.
Jail time can be years, fines can be in the thousands of dollars, and drug
treatment programs will be mandated when the prosecutor is successful
in getting a conviction. The sooner you speak with a
