What are the different types of drug crimes?
Prosecutors tend to take a hardline stance in drug crime cases. To understand the severity of your case, it is important to know the main types of drug offenses:
- Possession — Ownership or control of controlled substances
- Intent to sell — The sale of smaller amounts of drugs
- Manufacturing — Involvement in any step of the production process
- Trafficking — The transportation and sale of large amounts of drugs
Convictions for drug crimes can lead to significant prison sentences and fines, so retaining the help of a seasoned attorney is crucial. We will determine the best approach to effectively defend your case.
Different types of manslaughter charges
California has three distinct types of manslaughter charges:
- Voluntary — A killing during the heat of passion or following a sudden argument
- Involuntary — A death during the commission of a crime that is not inherently dangerous or during a lawful action that could produce death
- Vehicular — Occurs when negligent or unlawful driving results in another person’s death.
Manslaughter cases are often complex, and the line between a moment of passion and an intentional, premeditated act (murder) can be thin. We know how to identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and will fight for your freedom in the face of these types of charges.
What are the consequences of a sexual assault conviction?
Sexual assault is conduct or contact that one person seeking sexual gratification directs at a victim without their consent, and the consequences of a conviction for such an act can severely impact your life. For example, large fines and/or victim restitution may be ordered, potentially creating a financial burden. Most significantly, a convicted defendant might face extended incarceration and be entered into the state’s sex offender registry, possibly limiting employment and housing opportunities, not to mention the social stigma. We understand the significance of a conviction and will tirelessly fight to obtain a just outcome in your case.
What is the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony?
Misdemeanor crimes are less serious, have shorter sentences and smaller fines. Specifically, misdemeanor crimes can result in up to 365 days in a county jail and a $1,000 fine. A felony offense, on the other hand, has harsher punishments. Specifically, felony charges can result in the permanent loss of rights and life in prison. We are adept at handling a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony cases and will explain what to expect in your situation.
