Defending Against A Wide Range Of Drug Charges

There are a wide range of drug charges in California, and the potential consequences vary depending on the charge. Mr. Kucera will conduct a thorough investigation into your case to determine the nature of the government's evidence. He will look into whether law enforcement agencies violated your rights when gathering evidence against you, and if so ask the court to suppress or throw out the evidence that was illegally obtained. In every case, he will work to minimize the potential consequences as he fights for your acquittal. He handles a wide range of drug charges in both the state and federal courts of California, including:

  • Possession
  • Manufacturing
  • Trafficking
  • Dealing
  • Paraphernalia possession
  • Prescription forgery

The specifics of your charge will also vary greatly depending on the type of drugs involved. Mr. Kucera has the resources to handle cases involving all types of narcotics, including:

  • Marijuana
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription drugs

The firm also handles Ambien-related offenses. The drug is a short-term memory cleanser, and recently, there have been several cases of individuals who take Ambien, fall asleep and wake up in jail. Almost as though sleepwalking, they find themselves facing DUI and other crimes.

Drug Charge Sentencing Alternatives

Even if you are convicted of a drug charge in California, you may be able to avoid jail time. Depending on the charge, California offers a number of alternatives to jail for individuals convicted on drug charges, including drug education. In fact, if you are able to enter a drug rehabilitation program, you could have the charges against you dropped completely.
