Why Have I Been Charged With Drug Sales in OC?

There are several complex laws that prohibit sales of drugs, and most of which fall under the umbrella of California Health and Safety Code (HSC) 11351. Controlled substances can be anything from cocaine and meth to prescription drugs that have been obtained without a valid prescription.

Officers will look for the following items to determine your guilt:

While police may charge you with one thing, the District Attorney must carefully prove that you not only possessed or purchased or attempted to sell drugs, but that you did so intentional and knew that the drugs in question were illegal.

Defense Against Your Orange County Drug Charges

Proving you had the intent to sell marijuana or other drugs is actually quite difficult for the prosecution. This is because, unless there is a confession, these cases rely solely on circumstantial evidence, and often that evidence is solely based on witness testimonial. While a police officer's testimonial will be strong in court, there are many legal tactics that can be used to weaken this testimonial.

Other defense tactics that can be used include the following:

  • Lack of knowledge
  • Drugs in possession for personal use
  • Illegal search and seizure

Client Reviews

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”
