Factors in a Drug Crime Charge
Drug offenses are some of the most serious charges in the area of criminal law. Drug convictions carry severe penalties that are based on the specific factors of your case. Penalties depend on the nature of the drug charge, as well as other factors, including:
- Type of drug
- Amount of drugs in possession
- Purpose for drug possession
- Location of violation
If the drug crime was committed in conjunction with another offense, the penalties can substantially increase. You can either be charged with a misdemeanor or
felony drug offense, which can greatly impact the penalties you face.

sale of drugs, you will need to take immediate action to avoid maximum penalties. I am Attorney Alton Estrada and I have the experience necessary for the pursuit of a strong case result.
