Redondo Beach, Cocaine, Pot & Meth for Sales, 1 Year Program
Police arrived at the side of the road and summoned an ambulance. The girl was then taken to a local hospital, where she regained consciousness and was questioned. Her memory of events was hazy, but she did identify our client as her boyfriend.In 50 Words or Less: Redondo Beach, felony possession of cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine for sales, resisting arrest and probation violation, client agrees to one year treatment program and case dismissed.
While searching the car, officers found a purple backpack, which they asked our client to open. Again, our client should have declined their offer. Instead, he consented, and officer found it contained several bottles of prescription medicine along with two glass pipes, cocaine, methamphetamine, and marijuana. Three officers then tried to arrest our client, but he fought them several times, resisting arrest.
While still at the scene, officers received a radio dispatch advising that our client’s girlfriend had called the police and advised that our client had a backpack at her house that had more narcotics and paraphernalia. When the officers confiscated the (second) backpack they found more prescription medicine, bags with residue resembling methamphetamine, marijuana, sugar cubes containing a controlled substance (acid), syringes, three scales, a nasal narcotic ingester, papers containing "pay and owe" columns and several other items.
Our client was charged with: 1) Possession of a Controlled Substance (Health & Safety Code Section 11377(a)), a felony; 2) Resisting, Obstructing, Delaying of a Peace Officer or EMT (Penal Code Section 148(a)(1)), a misdemeanor; 3) Possession of a Controlled Substance (Health & Safety Code Section 11350(a)), a felony, and 4) Possession of a Controlled Substance (Business and Professions Code Section 4060), also a misdemeanor.
Greg Hill & Associates used all their knowledge and experience to get our client a deal that would help him overcome his drug addiction. Under the plea bargain negotiated, our client pled guilty to the two misdemeanor charges and was sentenced to 12 days in custody with credit for 8 days actual custody and 4 days of good time. He was also ordered to complete a one year program at a recovery center that would aid him in his recovery from drug addiction.
Had our client fought his case at trial and been found guilty, he faced a maximum of 7 1/2 years in prison.
Our client then did complete his one year program. Greg Hill & Associates then filed a motion to expunge his record, which the court granted.
