Drug Cases

San Jose Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

California & Federal Laws Impose Harsh Penalties for Drug Crimes

California criminal courts understand that many people facing drug crime allegations are dealing with addiction – not career criminals – which is why Attorney Nakano can help show the prosecution, judge, or jury that punishing you isn’t the route to take.

“Drug crimes” include a wide swath of offenses and potential combinations thereof, such as:

  • Drug possession
  • Drug possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug dealing (Smaller-scale distribution of drugs)
  • Drug trafficking (Larger-scale sale, transportation, and/or import of drugs in substantial amounts)
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia (i.e. pipes, bongs, rolling materials, syringes, etc.)
  • Cultivation
  • Conspiracy to commit any of the above drug crimes

Regardless of the type of drug involved, most drug offenses could yield severe consequences, such as:

  • Years in jail or prison (many drug offenses come with mandatory prison sentencing)
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Mandatory community service
  • Probation
  • Required participation in programs designed to curb drug use and deter future drug-related activity
  • Unpleasant secondary consequences, such as job loss, reputational damage, and difficulty obtaining financing for important purchases, such as homes and automobiles
