PC 1000
Penal Code Section 1000 permits first time drug offenders with no prior record to plead guilty but, be permitted to attend a four month class that meets once a week, in lieu of serving jail time. Once you have successfully completed the class and a total of 18 months has passed without another criminal arrest or conviction, and all fees associated with your case have been paid, the original case against you can be dismissed by the court. A good lawyer can help make this happen for you! Call WILL & WILL, LLP for help understanding if you are eligible for PC 1000, because not everyone is. If you don't know how the rules apply to you, you may be in for a rude awakening. You need a good attorney to avoid any surprises associated with your case, and to help make the process go smoothly.

Prop 36 (PC section 1210)
Proposition 36 allows an individual accused of a non-violent related drug offense, such as simple possession, or being under the influence of a controlled substance, to not be incarcerated as a term of probation. Prop. 36, as it is commonly referred to, can even apply if you have previously been charged with a drug possession or under the influence case. Prop 36, essentially put, is your last chance after PC 1000, for not serving jail time for a non-violent, drug-related offense. However, there are many intricacies to Prop 36 that you may not know. The attorneys at WILL & WILL, LLP, however, know them all! Call us or fill out our online consultation form. Our goal is to help you.
