Planning the right defense approach to drug charges in California

Many of our readers may be hearing news reports about the incremental shift in the way some politicians and law enforcement officials feel about the approach to drug crimes in California and throughout the country. There are some instances of cities or states reducing their emphasis on enforcement of lower level drug charges, like those related to the possession of small amounts of marijuana. But, in most places, Fresno included, being arrested on a charge related to drugs is still a very serious matter.

Several people face charges after police crackdown on gangs

Some of our Fresno readers may have heard about a shooting that took place last month that allegedly involved some members of prominent Asian gangs. In the shooting, a 22-year-old man was killed, and a suspect was not immediately apprehended. As a result, law enforcement officials decided to conduct a large-scale operation to crack down on alleged gang members and violent crimes in Fresno.

What does California's drug diversion program do?

The first time someone gets arrested it can be a frightening experience, even if it is for a low-level misdemeanor charge. This is often the case in arrests involving drugs and young people. There probably aren't too many California residents who would argue that young people have the best judgment, but should they pay the price for a small mistake for the rest of their lives?

An overview of domestic abuse in California

Domestic assault is an issue that has been gaining more widespread attention over the last few years than ever before. A couple of incidents involving players in the ever-popular National Football League have only served to highlight the fact that domestic abuse is an issue that can impact anyone, regardless of economic status.

Defending against felony charges in Fresno

Some people don't get too concerned if they are charged with a misdemeanor, like a DUI or possession of marijuana. Sure, they may be annoyed by the inconvenience of being on probation or having a restricted license, but they know that in the end they probably won't end up serving any jail time and eventually their lives will get back to normal. Facing a felony charge, however, is a whole different ballgame.
