Marijuana Defense Lawyer Michael Erpino
At long last the voters of California have restored some sanity to California’s Criminal Laws! Proposition 64 on the November 2016 ballot essentially legalized personal use and cultivation of Marijuana. If you have a conviction for any Marijuana crime call today (530) 898-1111 for a free consultation with an experienced Marijuana Defense Lawyer to discuss your next steps. We can petition the Court to reduce your conviction and sentence, and you may be able to Expunge Your Criminal Record and remove your Marijuana Conviction.
The new laws are full of exceptions that could stop you from benefiting from the legislative changes, depending upon your criminal history the facts of your case. In addition, nothing in the new laws will prevent the Government with charging you with certain crimes related to marijuana use. For example, Child Endangerment (the Government can still claim that you’ve “endangered” children by having them near Marijuana), and Driving Under the Influence. Additionally, Butane Honey Oil production is still illegal under the new laws.
In most cases, however, the new laws reduce prior felony conduct and convictions to misdemeanors or infractions. This means if you’re currently serving time in jail or prison for Marijuana crimes you may be able to be released. In addition, if you’re still on probation for a Felony Marijuana offense, you can petition the Court to reduce the conviction and eliminate Probation Supervision Fees. Call us today for a free consultation with an experienced Marijuana Defense Lawyer to discuss your situation.
