Elk Grove

Elk Grove is a cheerful city with a population of approximately 160,000 people located just south of Sacramento in California. It is the second-largest city in that county, and was the fastest-growing city in the United States from 2004 to 2005.

Elk Grove takes its name from its founding in 1850 when James Hall opened the Elk Grove Hotel & Stage Stop for people traveling from San Francisco to Sacramento. It stayed a small farming area until the 1980s, when suburbs began to develop from Sacramento to the north. Commuters from San Francisco also settled in the area looking for a quieter place to live while still working in the big city. The community continued to flourish in Elk Grove until the country’s economic crisis left it devastated in 2008.

Unfortunately along with this significant spike in population growth followed by economic recession, crime has also risen, including crime associated with drugs.

The rise in drug use corresponds with a similar rise in drug crimes being filed and prosecuted. The most common drugs associated with drug crime arrests in California are marijuana, heroin, methamphetamines, and cocaine. Marijuana arrests often involve selling or transporting the substance, while methamphetamine arrests are typically related to its production or possession.

Potential Sentences for Drug Crimes

If you are convicted of a drug crime there are a number of potential sentences you could face:

  • Jail time of up to 1 year (Misdemeanor offenses)
  • Prison time of 3 years or more (Felony offenses)
  • Drug rehabilitation (Diversion programs)
  • Veterans’ court (for military veterans only)

Being arrested in connection to drug use is something that needs to be taken seriously and handled with urgency. The first priority should be to hire an attorney who is equipped to deal with California’s drug laws and who has a proven record of successfully defending clients against similar offenses.

Client Reviews
“Mr. Pabla represented me with my DUI case. He has excellent communication skills and always kept me informed. Mr. Pabla made sure I understood the process and my rights. He eased my mind through a very stressful situation. I highly recommend Mr. Pabla.” Gurpreet
“I am so happy with the service that I received from Param S. Pabla. Jarrett did a great job solving my legal issue and I can’t recommend him enough! He was able to do everything quickly, painlessly, and was ALWAYS available to talk when I needed him. If I ever need help again, I will definitely use him!" Boris
“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.” T.C.
“My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.” Debbie
