If you have been arrested for a drug crime, a key question that can provide a useful defense is "how was the search and seizure of the drugs you're accused of possessing/transporting/manufacturing conducted?"
Roberta Brooks will focus on the circumstances of your arrest and the government's search for evidence to determine whether the police violated your Fourth Amendment Rights. With her background in law enforcement, Roberta knows first-hand how the police think and collect their evidence.
With your permission, Roberta will negotiate a plea deal which can include diversion, prop 36 sentencing (allows time to be served in a drug treatment program), or minimal exposure to a jail sentence, which includes alternative programs like the Sheriff's Work Program or Electronic Home Detention. Roberta has been a criminal defense attorney for 15 years. If you decide to take your case to trial, she will work with you to prepare a defense and then put that defense into action at trial.
Drug crimes include:
Intent to sell
Date rape drugs (GHB and Rohypnol)
Search and seizure
