Client Facing 4 years of Juvenile Time for Felony Sales of Prescription Pills Receives Deferred Entry of Judgement
Felony Sales of Prescription Pills
Deferred Entry of Judgement
My client was observed by a school administrator selling his A.D.D. medications (Bupropion and Nethylphenidate), controlled substances, at school in violation of Health and Safety Code section 11351 [Unlawful Possession for Sale]. My client admitted to this school administrator and to the police that he had been selling his A.D.D. medications at school to other students on the day that he was caught. The student whom my client had been observed selling the A.D.D. medications to also confirmed to police that my client had sold to her his prescription pills. In court my client was fortunate enough to be placed on a Deferred Entry of Judgment (D.E.J.) and avoid the petition being sustained for this offense. The court's grant of D.E.J. saved my client from having to serve time in Juvenile Hall or the Department of Juvenile Justice where he faced up to four years if the court sustained the petition. Additionally, by receiving D.E.J., my client was given the opportunity to have the petition dismissed upon his successful completion of his D.E.J.
