Drug Crimes Protecting Santa Barbara's Rights, One Case At a Time

Drug Crime Attorney in Santa Barbara

Drug Crime Cases

There is evidence that indicates that the war on drugs is a failure, yet drug crime cases are aggressively pursued and life-long jail sentences are imposed at a very high rate. A drug offense can be a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the quantity and type of drug found by law enforcement. Another factor in determining the seriousness of the charge is whether the drugs are for personal use or for sale.

My name is Adam L. Pearlman and I worked as a prosecutor for 9 years and know the lengths the prosecution will go to when seeking a conviction for a drug offense. Penalties for drug case convictions can include jail time, heavy fines, seizure of assets, loss of a driver's license, and being required to register as a narcotics offender. If you have been charged with a drug crime, contact me at once. I am a Santa Barbara criminal defense attorney that can provide the qualified legal help you will need.

Trust the Experts

The crime of "simple possession" requires that a person knowingly and intentionally possess an illegal drug or controlled substance without a legitimate prescription. The government is required to prove that the offender knew that the drug was a controlled substance and that the person had either actual possession of it or some other control over it. Even a first offender convicted of simple possession can be sentenced to up to a year in jail. My criminal defense firm will thoroughly review the evidence against you and look for weaknesses in the prosecution's case that can be used to get charges reduced or dismissed.
