Don’t let a drug crimes conviction ruin your child’s future. Get your child the defense he or she needs!

Minors are capable of committing many of the same drug crimes as adults. Los Angeles marijuana defense lawyer David D. Diamond has represented minors against a variety of drug crimes, including:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Selling drugs within a school or playground zone
  • Distributing drugs to other minors
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug distribution
  • Drug transportation
  • Possession of prescription or over-the-counter drugs for illegal purposes.

Any minor who commits a drug offense will likely face the same legal penalties as an adult convicted of the same charges. This can include imprisonment (usually in a juvenile detention facility), fines, community service, mandatory drug treatment, driver’s license suspension, and more. However, in many drug cases involving minors, there is a good chance the attorney can negotiate for a diversion program or alternative sentence instead of incarceration. In a diversion or alternative sentencing program, the minor will get the education, counseling, and treatment he or she needs to address their behavior so there is less of a chance they will commit another drug crime in the future.
