Drug Charges in Orange County

By Bruce C. Bridgman  Nov. 16, 2010 4:30p

Illegal drugs are generally substances designed to induce a state of euphoria or alter a person's senses. Many of these drugs can be lethal, especially in minors, or can cause dangerously altered abilities and so they are utterly illegal at both the state and federal level. There are differing levels of narcotic offense severities, which range from Schedule I narcotics that have a high potential for abuse including heroin, ecstasy, DMT, mushrooms, PCP and methamphetamine, to Schedule V drugs that include over the counter drugs such as Robitussin. The penalties for drug crime charges are severe and can include long prison term sentences and astronomical fines in serious cases. An Orange County drug crime lawyer can help you build a case and fight your charges in order to stay out of prison and avoid costly fines.

There are many different types of drug crimes, which can range from the less severe crimes of possession of a small amount of a drug, to possession of a large amount of a drug with intent to sell or distribute. Other more severe crimes include narcotic distribution, cultivation, manufacturing and trafficking. If a minor is involved with any part of the drug or the process the penalties automatically become more severe resulting in longer prison sentencing and even more enormous fines if convicted.
