Consequences if caught with drugs in Van Nuys, CA?

Question: What are the consequences if my friend was caught with drugs in Van Nuys, CA?  He was arrested yesterday and still in custody.  I’m not sure if he is going to bail out or not but wants me to help him find an attorney as soon as possible before his bad situation gets worse.
Answer: The consequences of getting caught with drugs can be pretty severe. A lot will depend on what he was caught with, how much he was caught with, any other drug paraphenalia, and potentially where he was caught (ie. was it on or near school premises). Also, other potential issues such as priors, probation, etc.
Another issue is what are the charges your friend is looking at.  Drug possession?  sales? Intent to sell?  transporting? etc.  I would highly recommend your friend hire an attorney to handle his  drug case. Call me to discuss further as I would like more information to better be able to answer any questions your friend may have.  I have successfully defended many drug cases and would be happy to assist in this matter.
