Possession of Methamphetamine Charge Dismissed Our West Covina drug defense attorneys represented a young man of college age after he was arrested and cited for possession of methamphetamine, a violation of California Health and Safety Code section 11377. Due to our early intervention, our West Covina meth possession defense lawyers were able to have the matter charged as a misdemeanor rather than a felony prior to filing. But we didn't stop there. We negotiated a settlement for drug diversion under PC 1000. Our client took a 20 day drug diversion course, maintained an arrest-free record. Judge dismissed of the matter. Not only was our young client able to avoid any jail time, but he will have no criminal record of this case.
