Fentanyl Drug Charges in Los Angeles

Posted by Ronald D. HeddingMay 25, 2023

Let's review why people who are charged with fentanyl drug charges are being treated so harshly.  Fentanyl is a hot drug, and the feds and states are prosecuting people at record numbers. 

The answer to that question about why they're treating people so harshly and prosecuting people for fentanyl cases on such a massive level is that many people are overdosing and dying from this dangerous drug. 

So, the prosecutors, both at the state and federal levels, have been asked, along with the FBI, Homeland Security, and local police agencies, to make sure that people are prosecuted to the full extent of the law regarding a fentanyl case.

So, if you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with fentanyl-related crimes, you want to get an attorney on the case immediately, mainly if a death has occurred.  Prosecutors and judges are going to be very harsh when it comes to these sorts of offenses.

Review of the Case Details

First, we have reviewed everything with your loved one, who is usually in custody, figured out a game plan moving forward, and see if they can be bailed out.  Also, start making some moves toward the defense of the case, which could include the following:

  • Mitigating the case, or
  • Set up a defense that makes sense in your particular case.

Also, we will look at the person's prior criminal record to see how bad it impacts how the prosecutors will treat them.

Once we get a game plan together, we can start executing the plan to end up with the best possible result.  We often put together a mitigation package to show the prosecutors and judge the whole story about what is going on in your case.

What I have you do is come in, sit down, and go over all the details. Then, we set up a game plan. 

Once you retain me, I'll start working on the case – contact the prosecutors and the court, and if your loved one is in custody, I will visit them.  Once I get my hands on all the paperwork and evidence I have, we can review it and decide what plan makes sense for them.
