TYPES OF DRUG OFFENSES

There are hundreds of different kinds of drug offenses, so it can be difficult to understand what you are facing if you are charged with one. Fortunately, most drug offenses fall under a few main categories that make things easier to understand.

The most common type of drug offense is drug possession. In these situations, an individual can be arrested because they have any amount of an illegal drug in their possession. This can be in their pocket, in their bag or backpack, in their vehicle, etc. The person does not need to have the drug on their person to be charged with possession, as long as the drug is among their things. For example, if the police find that you have a small bag of cocaine in your purse, they can arrest and charge you with drug possession.

DRUG CRIMES LAW FAQ'S

Huntington Beach, CA
  • How Long Do Misdemeanors Stay on Your Record?
    In California, misdemeanors stay on your record for life. There is no expiration date or automatic erasure date for these crimes. The only way that you can have a misdemeanor removed from your record is if you petition to have it expunged and the court accepts it. However, drug-related crimes are very serious in the eyes of the law, and expungement is not as easy as it might be for other offenses. You will need an attorney to help you.
  • Can a Drug Felony Be Expunged?

    Yes, it is possible to have a drug felony expunged in California. However, felony expungement is a long and complicated process. You can only have a felony expunged after it has first been reduced to a misdemeanor. If your felony offense was a “wobbler” charge, or a crime that is sometimes charged as a felony and sometimes charged as a misdemeanor, the court will often comply with your request. In all situations, you need an attorney to help.

  • How Do I Expunge My Record?
    If you have a felony charge, you will need to have it reduced to a misdemeanor before it can be expunged. If you have a misdemeanor charge on your record, you can hire an attorney to begin the process. Every process is different, so it is crucial to have an attorney help you with your case. In some cases, expungement may not be possible, or there may be a waiting period to start the process.
  • How Long Do Police Have to File Drug Charges?
    For misdemeanor drug offenses, the police usually have one year to file the charges. The police have three years to file felony drug charges. If the waiting period has elapsed before the prosecution begins the process of charging you, the case must be dropped. After that, you do not have to face the legal process.
