Bakersfield Drug Crime Lawyer

California’s drug laws can be confusing. What is legal within the state may not be legal on a federal level, and you may never be sure which laws apply to you until it’s too late. If you are facing drug crime charges in Bakersfield, contact a Bakersfield criminal attorney immediately to discuss your case.

Depending on the crime, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Both have major consequences. Drug crimes can quickly fall into the federal category once they involve illegal drug manufacturing or drug trafficking across state or international lines. Nearly all federal offenses are felonies. If you are convicted, you could be looking at thousands of dollars in fines plus years in prison. If the court decides that your drug crimes were gang-related, this could factor into a steeper penalty. What’s more, most drug-related felonies also count as a strike under California’s Three Strikes law—meaning that, if you already have felonies under your belt, a drug crime could earn you life in prison.
