In the case of Frank M., Ms. Gillis’ client was charged with violations of Health and Safety Code sections 11378-Possession of Narcotics for Sale- a Felony and 11359-Possession of Marijuana for Sale- A felony. Ms. Gillis was able to get the case dismissed without her client having to go through a preliminary hearing or a trial.
Frank M. maintained his innocence but had he been convicted was facing significant jail time, fines and years of probation. Drug sales charges have very serious and long lasting consequences If Convicted of Possession of Narcotics for Sales he could have been sentenced up to three years of incarceration, a $10,000 fine, probation and registration as a narcotics offender.
If you or a family member has been charged with any drug charges, you need a local San Joaquin County criminal defense attorney who will fight for you.
