Drug Possession and Prop 36

Fight Drug Possession Charges In Ventura County


If you or a loved one is charged with a drug crime, you can fight it in a variety of ways. You may face a serious sentence for a drug crime conviction. To protect your rights, hire a Ventura County drug crimes defense lawyer with the experience and skill to fight for your legal rights. Contact me, Kristi Peariso, immediately. I know the drug laws and Ventura drug courts, having defended people accused of drug crimes involving:


Drug Diversion - Proposition 36 and PC 1000

For some drug charges, many offenders avoid jail entirely. Under Proposition 36 or PC 1000 drug diversion, some non-violent drug offenders get probation and a drug treatment program instead of jail time. This initiative allows 1st and 2nd time non-violent, simple drug possession offenders the opportunity to receive substance abuse treatment instead of incarceration. Once you complete the drug treatment program successfully, your drug charges conviction is erased from your record, and you are not considered a registered drug offender.


Alternatives to Jail - Treatment Instead of Punishment for Drug Crimes

When it comes to drug cases, treatment is often a more appropriate sentence than jail or prison. This is because it is important to help people with their drug problem and not simply punish them. If you have been arrested for a drug-related offense, there are various treatment options. Alternatives include Proposition 36, PC 1000, Diversion, and Drug Court.

With the help of an experienced attorney, people accused of drug possession can often get alternatives to jail, such as rehabilitation. Those arrested for more serious drug crimes can see their sentences minimized through skilled negotiation.
