Two Controlled Substances Cases Completely Dismissed! Two Health and Safety Code section 11377, “Possessing a Controlled Substance” Offenses and a Health and Safety Code section 11364, “Possession of Smoking Device” Dismissed Per Penal Code § 1385, In the

Recently, in Los Angeles County at the Downey Courthouse our office successfully negotiated for a complete dismissal of our client’s two cases.

Our client hired our office after being charged with violating Health and Safety Code section 11377, Possessing a Controlled Substance, and Health and Safety Code section 11364, Possession of a Smoking Device. We were able to negotiate to place our client on pre-trial diversion for the charges and our client was ordered to complete 45 Narcotics Anonymous classes.

While our client was in the pre-trial diversion program, he picked up a new drug offense for violating Health and Safety Code section 11377, Possessing a Controlled Substance. We then negotiated to have our client complete 45 additional Narcotics Anonymous classes in order for our client to earn a dismissal of this offense as well.

Our client successfully completed the narcotics anonymous classes and both cases were completely dismissed!

This is a great result for our client, especially given that our client is not a United States citizen and the convictions would have caused him serious federal immigration consequences!
