Riverside Drug Crimes Attorney

Picture of money and drug exchangeDespite the passing of Prop. 47, which mandates that all drug possession crimes for most offenders can only be prosecuted as misdemeanors, drug crimes will continue to remain serious offenses in California. In many cases drug charges are filed along with other crimes such as theft, robbery, Domestic Violence, and DUI. With drug prosecutors now unable to charge simple possession as felonies in most cases there is now an increased focus on prosecuting and punishing drug dealers. Drug transportation and sales cases will now be prosecuted more vigorously than ever. Lapine & Forsse has extensive experience handling a wide range of drug cases from simple possession to conspiracy to distribute over 40 kilo’s of cocaine.
