LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LibertyBell Law Group’s criminal lawyers successfully gained probation for a California client who was charged with cultivation of 739 marijuana plants, possession of marijuana for sale, and possession of concentrated cannabis (hashish). The client could have gone to state prison for 8 years. Case No. 12F06809.
The large scale marijuana operation consisted of plants grown in different rooms of a house located in a quiet and well-manicured middle class family neighborhood. No one actually lived in the house as it was only used for the purpose of cultivating and processing the marijuana and hashish. A very complex system of marijuana cultivation was in place, including digital timers, chemicals and custom ventilation, lighting and watering systems. All the windows and doors were also blocked from any outside peeking. Neighbors, utility workers and law enforcement noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the house. Law enforcement also noted an unusually high amount of electricity being used.
Aside from being charged in a California criminal case, the client could also have been charged in a separate federal criminal case which carries potentially severe penalties and fines. Federal laws for marijuana are different from California state laws wherein cultivation, sales, and distribution of any amount of marijuana are illegal. If the client was convicted on federal offenses, the client could have gone to prison for 40 years and fined $1,000,000.
“Our team of criminal lawyers worked very hard for the marijuana grower. The large scale cultivation and possession of marijuana operation by our client was for a collective,” says Jennifer Wirsching, a top criminal lawyer at LibertyBell Law Group. Lawyer Wirsching has worked on many high profile and serious state and federal defense cases involving manufacturing, cultivation, sales, and possession of drugs.
