In the case of Elizabeth L., Ms. Gillis’ client was charged with a violation of Health and Safety Code section 11378-Possession of Narcotics 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.
Elizabeth maintained her innocence but had she 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 she 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.
