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)
