Defense for Drug Charges in Los Angeles

A person will be charged with a drug crime for participating in or committing any illegal activity that involves a drug, substance, or narcotic deemed illegal by the Controlled Substances Act. Most drug crimes involve marijuana, cocaine, heroin, PCP, LSD, Ecstasy, methamphetamine, or any derivative of these drugs. A person can also be charged with a drug crime for possessing, using, selling, distributing, or manufacturing a prescription or over-the-counter drug for illegal purposes.

Types of Drug Crimes

If you are searching for an experienced drug crimes defense lawyer to represent you in court, you’ve come to the right place. Attorney David D. Diamond has handled countless drug crimes cases on behalf of clients in Los Angeles, and has successfully defended clients against the following drug charges:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug possession with intent to sell
  • Drug cultivation
  • Drug manufacturing
  • Drug distribution
  • Drug transportation
  • Drug trafficking
  • Prescription fraud

Drug Crime Penalties

If you have been charged with any of these drug crimes, you stand to face numerous penalties upon conviction. Depending on if you’ve been charged with a felony or misdemeanor, you could face imprisonment (jail for a misdemeanor, state or federal prison for a felony), large fines, mandatory drug counseling or treatment, community service, a mark on your permanent record, and more.

However, in some cases, especially for first-time offenders or for cases involving misdemeanor charges, Mr. Diamond can negotiate for alternative sentencing. When alternative sentencing is granted, instead of carrying out your sentence in jail, you will be permitted to attend a drug treatment program. After successful completion of the program, your arrest and/or conviction will be removed from your record.

Mr. Diamond can also negotiate for a diversion. Diversion is another alternative that calls for you to enter of plea of guilty, but instead of being sentenced, you agree to participate in a diversion program, which is basically a series of drug classes. Random drug testing is also normally conducted under the diversion program. As long as you successfully complete and comply with the terms of the program, you will not face any sentencing and no conviction will appear on your record.
