Victor Lopez Jr. gets probation for drug conviction

The son of outgoing Orange Cove mayor Victor Lopez was sentenced this morning in Fresno County Superior Court to two years of probation following his conviction on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance --- six methadone pills.
Victor Lopez Jr. also must attend a drug-treatment program and stay away from illegal drugs, but can take methadone for his ailing back, said attorney Roberto Dulce, who represents Lopez.
Lopez said he has a doctor's prescription for methadone.
If Lopez completes the terms of his probation, he can petition the court to have the felony charge dismissed, Dulce said.
Afterward, a defiant Lopez said he was innocent of the charge. He said sheriff's deputies, prosecutors and the media blew the case out of proportion.
"I didn't get a fair shake," Lopez said. "If it was anyone else, this case would have been dimissed".
On Oct. 19, jurors convicted Lopez after three hours of deliberations.
Lopez faced as much as three years in prison, but Judge Mark Snauffer said this morning that Lopez would receive probation and be ordered to an out-patient, court-approved drug-treatment program.
