NASCAR and Meth Charges

Posted on: July 16, 2009 at 10:48 a.m.

Any Los Angeles criminal defense attorney will tell you that drug crimes are a serious offense and can be heavily prosecuted by Los Angeles police. Drug crimes include drug possession, drug sales, drug trafficking and drug manufacturing, all of which can be charged as felonies or misdemeanors. You may not always be able to predict just who will be an addict or a drug crime offender, and in fact many celebrities use drugs that are a big surprising.

When you think about celebrity drug use, you may be thinking in regards to cocaine or some "fancy" drug. However, as recent events have shown, many celebrity drug crimes involve drugs you may think are "lower class" drugs.

NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield tested positive for Meth recently, highlighting a long history of alleged drug use. When people think of Meth, they don't think about professional athletes with millions of dollars; they usually think of a trailer in the High desert. However, this drug crime and others are perpetrated by people of all walks of life.

A quality Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who defends drug crimes will counsel you through any investigations, interrogation and so forth. Los Angeles drug crimes defense involves sophisticated legal technique, and a top-notch understanding of Los Angeles Drug crime law.

The state of California has zero tolerance when it comes to drug related offenses. All drug crimes are taken seriously by law enforcement and prosecuted to the fullest extent. Commonly committed drug crimes include: drug possession, drug possession with intent to sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, drug manufacturing, drug trafficking, drug distribution, drug cultivation, and money laundering.

If you have been charged with a serious criminal offense, do not hesitate to call Kestenbaum, Eisner & Gorin, LLP at (877) 781-1570. Our knowledgeable legal team can evaluate your case and advise you of your legal options.
