Possession of Controlled Substance Paraphernalia

[Health and Safety Code Sections 11364]


I was arrested for possession of  [controlled substance] paraphernalia [Health and Safety Code (HS) 11364.1(a)] and given a date to appear; then just a few weeks later I was once again arrested for Possession of [controlled substance] paraphernalia [Health and Safety Code (HS) 11364.1(a).  I failed to appear for either court date. To compound matters I was on probation for Driving on a Suspended License [Vehicle Code Section 14601.5]. As a result of my failures to appear, WARRANTS went out on my two paraphernalia cases and my probation matter [Driving on a Suspended License Vehicle Code Section 14601.5].  My family hired Attorney Will Bruzzo to represent because of his experience and familiarity with the Orange County Criminal Courts. Mr. Bruzzo proved to be a very good criminal attorney. He managed to recall all three warrants without my being present.  He then resolved my case by getting me into a program (Proposition 36/ Penal Code Section 1210). This program will allow the cases to be DISMISSED if I successfully complete the program. Also, he got my probation reinstated on my suspended license case and he got the two [charges] for Failure to Appear [FTA] DISMISSED. I am very happy with this result and I would enthusiastically recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Paraphernalia case or any criminal matter.

I was charged with Possession of Controlled Substance Paraphernalia (Health and Safety Code Section 11364.1(a), which carries a punishment of up to one year in custody. [The police found a glass pipe on his person with a whitish residue] I hired attorney Will Bruzzo to represent me because of his familarity with the courts and District Attorney in Orange County. Mr. Bruzzo made two appearances for me and was able to get the case DISMISSED even though the evidence against me was strong. I would therefore recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any criminal or possession of controlled substance paraphernalia case.

I was arrested on a case of possession of paraphernalia [Health and Safety Code Section 11364] and then arrested again for the same thing a week later back in 2008. I went to court on the first case and received Deferred Entry of Judgment [DEJ] also known as PC 1000. However, I never enrolled in the course, and I never showed up on the second case. As a result two warrants went out for my arrest. Four years later I was living out of state and finding it difficult to find a job given the existence of the two warrants. As such, I hired Attorney William W. Bruzzo to represent me because of his familiarity with the courts and the District Attorney in Orange County, California. Mr. Bruzzo was able to appear without my being present. After a couple of trips to court Mr. Bruzzo was able to get one of the cases DISMISSED and the other he got a terminal disposition which means there is no probation. I am very pleased with this result and I would therefore highly recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Warrant or Possession of Paraphernalia case.
