A Fillmore man faces charges related to drug possession and weapons violations. According to local authorities, they responded to a call for assistance in Fillmore last week. When they arrived, the suspect appeared to be intoxicated.
Police searched the residence and discovered methamphetamine and a collection of weapons. They also discovered cash. They arrested a male suspect at the home for violating a restraining order.
Authorities booked him into the Ventura County Jail. He faces charges of felony drug possession for sale, as well as other charges related to the arrest. He will return to court on December 13 and is free on a $60,000 bond.
Fillmore drug possession attorney
Drug possession cases in California have changed, thanks to Proposition 47. While people facing simple possession charges benefit, possession for sale is still a felony under the law. Felony charges can result in long prison sentences. More directly, felony “strikes” can bring you one step closer to lifetime imprisonment in California. When you face felony drug charges, hire an experienced drug possession attorney like Robert Helfend.
Mr. Helfend has nearly 35 years of experience in criminal courtroom defense. He takes cases in Ventura County and throughout Southern California. Hiring an experienced, aggressive defense attorney can make a major difference in the outcome of your case.
Mr. Helfend personally handles each case he takes. That means your case won’t get shuffled to a less experienced attorney. That sometimes happens with larger, less personal law firms, but it means the client may deal with a less experienced attorney.
His first priority will be to get the charges against you reduced or dropped altogether. That’s important, because repeat felony convictions can lead to longer sentences. In California, a third, violent felony conviction can put you in prison for life.
Don’t settle for an inexperienced attorney, or one who won’t fight aggressively for your rights. Contact Robert Helfend or call toll-free at (800) 834-6434, (805) 273-5611, (310) 456-3317 or (818) 591-2809 for an immediate consultation on your Ventura County drug possession case.
