Drug Sales and Distribution in Van Nuys, California
Penalties for drug sale or drug distribution will vary depending upon the type of drug and the amount involved. The value of the narcotics, whether the defendant has any priors and the location of the sale will also impact the sentence a defendant may face.
At times a simple drug possession charge will turn into something more serious – if law enforcement finds evidence of or has reason to believe that you had possession of narcotics with the intention of selling or distributing them. This may occur when law enforcement finds baggies, measuring devices, large amounts of cash or other evidence which suggests distribution/sale. Possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell is a felony offense which may result in a state prison sentence of up to 4 years (or 5 years if cocaine is involved).
