Van Nuys Drug Possession Attorney

San Fernando & Van Nuys Drug Possession Attorney

Individuals charged with misdemeanor and felony drug possession – whether for marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine or other drugs and narcotics – may qualify for various drug treatment programs. Such programs include Deferred Entry of Judgment (“DEJ”) and Proposition 36. Individuals who qualify for and successfully complete a DEJ and/or Proposition 36 program will have their drug possession case dismissed.

Individuals who do not qualify for a drug treatment program, either because of prior criminal convictions or they refuse treatment, can face sentences from infractions to misdemeanor and felony convictions which could include a substantial period of incarceration in county jail or, in extreme cases, state prison.
