Redding California Drug Crimes Defense
Defending California Clients From Drug Charges
In the past few years, California has started taking a more holistic approach towards resolving drug possession and other drug crimes. Many courts are more concerned with finding treatment for offenders, rather than sending them to jail.
Although this often results in lighter sentences, those treatment options are not simply handed out to everyone charged with a drug crime: some more serious offenses are ineligible for those programs.
I am Douglas L. Gardner, Attorney at Law, and I defend clients throughout Redding and Northern California who are facing charges for drug possession or other drug crimes. With over 20 years of experience in the criminal system, I aggressively defend my clients.

Addressing the Issue
In order for a person to be considered for treatment options instead of prison or jail, they must show the courts they are serious about fixing their problems. I work closely with my clients to understand their situation and the seriousness of the charges against them.
In preparing my defense, I check issues such as whether the police behaved responsibly, if they obtained any evidence improperly and if they had probable cause to suspect you in the first place.
Not all drug crimes cases involve hardened criminals. Often, I find that my clients are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. If it is possible, and the evidence dictates, I can use this information to present an effective case to the court to attempt to get my clients into treatment rather than jail. I defend clients who are facing charges for drug possession, manufacturing, sale or trafficking or drugs, including:
- Prescription drugs
