Bakersfield Drug Sales Lawyer
Information on Drug Sales Charges
If you have been arrested for selling drugs, you need to be aware that this is a serious charge that can land you in prison. These are serious felony offenses, and are harshly prosecuted and severely punished. When facing charges for the sale of drugs, you need to contact a Bakersfield drug sales defense attorney from our firm as soon as possible. An experienced and aggressive attorney will need as much time as possible to devise a defense strategy that may be able to help you avoid being convicted and going to prison.
In many cases, drug sales charges are associated with other charges, such as trafficking, transporting, manufacturing or distribution. If facing multiple charges, sentencing will be extremely harsh if you are convicted. In most cases, you can be facing a lengthy prison sentence. If you are found to have sold drugs across state lines, or distribute them across state lines, you may be facing federal charges, which can have very serious consequences. When facing such serious charges, the most important thing you can do is hire an aggressive and experienced attorney. Beyond prison or jail time, consequences will likely include huge monetary fines, probation, community service, and a lengthy parole when released from jail. Contacting our firm will be the first step in defending yourself against these harsh punishments.
