Los Angeles Drug crimes in California involve the possession, sale, transportation, manufacturing, transportation for sale of an unlawful narcotic, money laundering, drug trafficking and distribution. Los Angeles narcotics crimes and Southern California drug offenses are the unlawful use or possession of narcotics including cocaine in its base form (crack), marijuana, methamphetamine (speed), heroin, LSD, cocaine, PCP, ecstasy, as well as unauthorized use, possession or sale of prescription drugs such as Vicodin or Oxycontin. Los Angeles drug crime attorney Michael Kraut is a former prosecutor and educated at Harvard Law School who now provides his Southern California drug crime clients with an aggressive legal defense.

Some of the Los Angeles and Southern California drug crimes include the following:

California leads the United States with drug prosecutions. The penalties for a conviction of a drug crime can vary greatly. The prosecutor files charges depending on the type of drug, the quantity, whether the drug is possessed for personal use or for sale, and the past criminal record of a person. The consequences of a conviction can result in imprisonment in jail or prison, probation or parole after a person is released from custody, enormous legal fines, restitution to law enforcement for the cost of investigation, mandatory Los Angeles drug counseling, registration as a drug offender with local law enforcement, and having a driver's license revoked. In many cases, Los Angeles warrants are issued and a person may be extradited from out of state to face charges on their Southern California warrants.

Los Angeles drug crimes will be used to enhance future sentencing if a person is convicted of a crime. Commonly, law enforcement will charge a person with possession for sale even if the person possessed the narcotics for personal use. It is important to hire an aggressive Los Angeles drug crime attorney to handle these types of cases. In many cases, a highly trained Southern California drug crime defense attorney may have the possession charges thrown out completely because of unfair practices by law enforcement. In other cases, serious drug cases that could result in a prison sentence of life may be pled down to simple possession charges and a person may be eligible for a drug diversion program and counseling, rather then jail time.

In some cases, law enforcement will have executed Los Angeles search warrants in homes and vehicles that they believe house illegal narcotics. If drugs are found, the property will be seized and forfeited. If this happens, a person will loose their property forever. This includes homes, cars and money.
