Three main charges can be categorized as drug crimes, each punishable in corresponding severity. They are as follows:
- Drug Possession: Possession of controlled substances is punishable depending upon the substance, the amount on your person or under your control, prior criminal history, the nature of the charge and the available substance abuse programs in your area. Your attorney’s knowledge of the options available and the specifics of the substance is critical in these cases.
- Drug Dealing: This charge is punishable to the fullest extent of the law due to its connection with drug trafficking and violent criminal activity in Florida. The circumstances of your arrest are key in your defense regarding drug dealing. The priority here is to determine if your offense can be considered drug dealing or not. Your attorney will examine if, at the time of your arrest, any other people were present, the location of the drugs in correspondence to the client, whether the drugs were for personal use, etc.
- Drug Trafficking: Conviction of this crime comes with mandatory prison sentences, penalties and extensive probation. Even if you are not found to be a “drug dealer,” you will be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Civil penalties may also apply, including seizure of your home, vehicle, money, or business, i.e. anything that could be linked to the crime.
Regardless of the category of your criminal charge, it is imperative that you retain legal counsel as quickly as possible after your arrest so your defense team has ample time to prepare your case. You do not want to be left in the dark. Contact our team and have an ally in your fight against your charges.
