Knowledgeable Drug Crime Representation in California

When facing a drug crimes accusation, the court will seek to prove you guilty of your charges. Our Redding drug crime lawyer will prioritize the protection of your freedoms and work zealously to ensure your rights were not violated in the moments leading up to your arrest.

Defense strategies differ depending on your circumstances. The law protects you against unfair search and seizure and against having law enforcement invade your home without a warrant. You can trust our experienced legal team to meticulously comb through the details of your arrest and make sure you were treated with the respect the law affords.

Types of drug crimes we represent include:

  • Personal possession
  • Sales to a minor or on school grounds
  • Possession for sale

  • Manufacturing a controlled substance
  • Cultivation
  • Trafficking
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

What is the Sentence for Drug Possession in California?

In California, the sentence for drug possession of several controlled substances between Schedule I through Schedule V in any amount can be up to one year in jail.

According to Proposition 47, some circumstances do not allow for offenders to receive this sentence. If you are a registered sex offender or have been convicted of some specific violent crimes, you may be charged with a felony according to the type and amount of drug found in your possession.

Do not try to face these charges alone. In California, the court aggressively prosecutes drug crimes with little mercy. Your best defense is to request legal representation from a criminal defense attorney who can meet the charges with equal aggression.

We can keep you informed throughout your case. Rob Hammonds is proud to be accessible and willing to address all of your concerns and questions. You should never feel alone when facing drug crimes charges.

    "You ROCK!!!"
    I am writing to let others know that Rob Hammond and his staff our top notch. My son has been involved with criminal justice system for a few years and we were lucky when Rob got his cases. He is smart, realistic, upfront, with a great sense of humor. I called many times and he always called back, despite his crazy schedule. The outcome, through Rob’s hard work and understanding of Shasta County’s Criminal Justice system, was excellent. My son has a chance to be the great guy he is. I strongly believe if we had another attorney the outcome would not have been the same. As for his staff - outstanding. They put up with a nagging mom and showed me respect and understanding. My messages were passed on and/or they called me back. I truly very thankful for Rob Hammond and highly recommend him. So much so that I am writing my first review! Not just anyone could prompt me to do this. I want Rob, his staff, and the folks of Shasta County to know that if in a situation where you need legal representation - call Hammond Law office. He is the MAN!!!
