Drug Offenses

Mr. Grupenhagen handles all kinds of drug cases in Orange County. If you or someone you know has been arrested or charged with a drug offense in Orange County, call today.

we think there is no other area of criminal law that has the same amount of “street knowledge” about the penalties you are facing for a drug offense, than this area. And in my experience, we find that most of the things you expect to happen, and that your friends tell you to expect, are wrong.

For example, if drugs are found in a vehicle, who do they belong to? Well you don’t have to have the drugs in your pocket to be in possession of them. If the police find them in your car, and you’re the only one in the car, they’re your drugs! Even if your buddy just left them there, the police can arrest you, and don’t they love doing that? Don’t let what you hear on the street deter you from seeking the assistance of an experience lawyer to help you fight a drug offense in Orange County.

Yes, it’s true that you always have the right to have a judge hear the facts of your case to determine if the stop and/or arrest were lawful in the first place and whether the officer had probable cause to make the arrest. If the police did not have a lawful basis to stop and detain you, then the evidence cannot be used against and the charges pending against you must be dismissed.

For cases where you are charged with possession with the intent to sell, the penalties include prison time, and there’s no programs allowed by the court except the ones in prison. Call me today, because the results may hinge on what evidence police found at the scene that will support the theory that there were drugs.

The police will have an “expert” in the sales of the drugs that you’re charged with selling or intending to sell. These “experts” will tell the court that if there are certain items in the vicinity of the accused, they are there to help facilitate the packaging, or transportation, or selling of the drugs. This includes scales, baggies, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, cutting agents, pay/owe sheets, large amounts of cash, small amounts of cash, among others. And if you aren’t under the influence when they find you in possession, then the presumption is that you must be selling the stuff, because you’re not using them.

In addition to penalties from the court, the DMV can suspend your driver's license for 6 months if you plead guilty to possession of any drug in Orange County.

Call today to let me start defending you against potential lengthy incarceration due to your being charged with a drug offense in Orange County.
