Monterey County Drug Crime Attorneys

Dedicated to Defending Your Rights

The Biegel Law Firm’s Monterey County drug crime lawyers are intimately familiar with the complex issues involved with defending clients against drug charges. Depending on the charges filed against you, you could face penalties as minor as mandatory drug treatment to penalties as severe as life in prison.

While marijuana possession is often indicted on a lesser misdemeanor charge, felony charges may be filed for possession of controlled substances like:

  • Amphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Crystal meth
  • Ecstasy
  • Hashish
  • Human growth hormone
  • Methamphetamine
  • Prescription drugs
  • Codeine
  • Oxycodone
  • Oxycontin
  • Valium
  • Vicodin
  • Steroids

Penalties for Conviction

First-time and second-time offenders accused of non-violent, simple drug possession may be eligible to benefit from drug treatment programs, rehab, and diversionary programs as an alternative to incarceration. Under California’s Proposition 36 (The Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act of 2000), Deferred Entry of Judgment (DEJ), and other “supervision and treatment” programs endorsed by drug courts, our attorneys are often able to bridge the gap between treatment modalities and mitigated sentencing. In many cases, completion of drug treatment could result in a dismissal of the drug charges.

Meanwhile, third-time felony drug convictions automatically result in mandatory minimum sentences of 25 years to life, per California’s Three Strikes law. If you are facing criminal charges under these circumstances, the only thing standing between you and a jail cell is the criminal defense attorney you select to represent you.
