An Azusa man and a Glendora woman were arrested last month and charged with drug possession and evading police following a short chase between Azusa and Duarte.
According to police, an Azusa officer attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Dennis Ayon, 36, of Azusa for a traffic violation. Ayon fled the scene and was pursued by the officer. The chase led officers through Azusa, Monrovia and Duarte, before abruptly ending when Ayon collided with a number of parked cars. Police arrested Ayon for felony drug possession. His passenger, Darla Abriel, 30, of Glendora was arrested for misdemeanor drug possession and multiple outstanding warrants.
Both suspects were treated for minor injuries received during the crash. Abriel was released on a $45,000 bond. Ayon is being held without bond, pending court appearances in February and May.
Los Angeles Drug Possession Lawyer
If you’re facing a charge of drug possession, Los Angeles lawyer Robert Helfend is ready to take your case. Drug possession and other drug crimes factor into most incarcerations in California today. Prosecutors have leeway in how they charge certain drug offenses, so an experienced lawyer may be able to bargain charges against you down to a misdemeanor.
Outside of having charges against you dropped altogether, having a charge reduced to a misdemeanor can be a positive outcome. At the least, it allows a person to avoid a felony conviction, which could otherwise trigger severe future penalties in California.
Don’t risk your freedom on an inexperienced lawyer, or one who will not fight aggressively for your freedom.
