Arcata Criminal Defense Lawyer

Accused of a crime in Arcata?

Arcata is a college town located 280 miles north of San Francisco in Humboldt County, and is home to a vast number of natural resources, lands and mineral programs. With a population of 17,231 and a thriving college population, Arcata is a place where environmentalism and social activism is broadly embraced.

The violent crime rate in Arcata is 39% less than the California average, but the property crime rate for activities like theft and robbery is 29% greater in Arcata than the rest of the state. Arcata is notorious for rampant drug use and panhandling, and this is partly because Arcata's climate and geographical profile are ideal conditions for growing marijuana. State officials and law enforcement agencies have identified Arcata and other northwestern counties as problematic drug crime areas, and frequent raids are conducted in Arcata and throughout Humboldt County.

Even though medical marijuana in California has been legalized, many people are still arrested for using the drug in illegal ways. If you have been arrested for a drug crime, DUI, or any other offense, it is important to seek the help and protection of a skilled criminal defense lawyer. Regardless of whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, the penalties for a conviction will significantly impact your life.
