According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports, in 2007 drug abuse was the number one violation with 1.8 million people arrested. Thankfully, California is a state that believes in rehabilitation instead of jail time for drug offenders, particularly for first- or second-time offenders. If you have been accused of a drug crime, it is important to choose an attorney with the experience to know the options available.
