At Kern Law, APC we have successfully defended clients for over 15 years that have been charged with drug charges, Health and Safety Code Section 11350. The drug charges may range from Heroin and Cocaine to prescription drugs, such as, Fentanyl, Hydrocodone, Norco, Vicodin, OxyContin, Percocet, and Xanax. If you or someone you know has been charged, arrested, or is under investigation for HS 11350(a) or HS 11377(a), contact Kern Law, APC today. We provide a confidential consultation, and we are available 24 hours.

At Kern Law, APC we aggressively defend clients charged with unlawful drug possession. We attack the evidence in a variety of ways – we challenge evidence obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment, due to an illegal search; we challenge statements that were unlawfully obtained because they were not made voluntarily or were coerced in violation of the Fifth Amendment; and we conduct our own investigation of the case to put forward the strongest possible defense for our client based on the facts of the case.

For example, when we defend cases that involve unlawful possession, some factual issues we consider are the following:

  • Were the drugs unlawfully possessed or was there a valid prescription;
  • Did the person charged know anything about the presence of any drugs;
  • Did the person know that the item was a controlled substance; or
  • Was the amount of drugs found in a useable amount or was it debris or trace amounts.

There are many other defenses that may be applicable to your case. The consequences of a conviction for HS 11350(a) or HS 11377(a), even though a misdemeanor, may result in up to one year in jail, probation, a conviction on your record, fines, and losing your Fourth Amendment rights.
