Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
A Wallin & Klarich client recently had all charges pursuant to California Health and Safety Code 11377(a) and Business and Professions Code 4060 for possession of narcotic drugs without a prescription dismissed. The client, a registered nurse, no longer faces the loss of her job after seeking the assistance of David E. Wohl, experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney of Wallin & Klarich.
“We dig deep into the rules of evidence and criminal procedure to find a way to give our clients the upper hand. In this case, we were able to save the client’s career by taking the legal fight to the next level. This is something we do for all Wallin & Klarich clients,” said Mr. Wohl.
According to court record from South District Long Beach Courthouse, the client was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence. After the client was arrested, law enforcement officers searched the client. The officers found hundreds of prescription painkillers of all different types in the client’s purse. The client had a prescription for a few of the drugs found in her possession. However, the client did not have a prescription for a vast majority of the other drugs that the officers found in her possession. The client was charged under California Health and Safety Code section 11377(a) and California Business and Professions Code 4060 for possession of a controlled substance. The client is a registered nurse and if she had been convicted of the charges would have lost both her job and career. In addition to the possibility of losing her job and career, the client faced up to one year in jail if convicted.
The client sought the assistance of Mr. Wohl, who is experienced in dealing with drug possession cases. Mr. Wohl was able to find legal flaws relating to the search and seizure procedure followed by the officers when they found the client to be in possession of painkillers at the time of the arrest according to court documents. In addition, Mr. Wohl found that there were legal issues relating to the breath and blood test the client was required to perform at the police station. After pointing out the substantial errors made by law enforcement during the client’s arrest, Mr. Wohl was able to convince the court to dismiss the serious drug charges against the client. As a result of the dismissal, the client no longer faces the threat of losing her job or the possibility of serving a jail sentence.
