Drug offenses are taken very seriously and can be charged and prosecuted under either Federal or State law, and sometimes even both. It is important to know that State and Federal laws are increasingly providing for tough prosecution on drug trafficking, drug possession and other drug related offenses and the criminal penalties can at times be quite harsh. Drug trafficking cases in Florida carry mandatory minimum sentences which can range from 3 years to 25 years, even for a first time offender. Florida drug laws are among some of the harshest in the country. Even relatively minor drug charges, such as possession, possession with intent and delivery of a small amount of drugs, can sometimes carry serious penalties upon conviction and have an impact over your personal, family and professional life.
Drug Offenses in Florida - Legal Consequences
Penalties for drug-related crimes in Florida may be very serious and can greatly vary depending on previous convictions and on the offense level of the current crime, that is why it is very important that you contact an experienced Central Florida drug defense lawyer at NeJame Law. If this is your first drug offense or your offense is simple drug possession, you may be eligible for different programs making your charges being dropped by the state or dismissed by the court. Otherwise, penalties can include anything from probation, attending a drug treatment program, or mandatory jail time. Jail time can be anywhere between few months to life in prison. Sometimes the State can even pursue the death penalty if the offender intentionally kills another person during the course of a drug enterprise.
Drug-related crimes - Defense
Even if the police finds drugs directly in a person's possession, the drugs and other evidence could be suppressed (thrown away) if the police did not follow the proper procedures required under the U.S. Constitution. One of the first things our drug defense lawyers look for when defending someone accused of a drug offense is whether the police themselves acted in a legal manner. Other defenses include areas such as whether the actual weight of the substance was correct when allowing for hydration, whether the chemical composition of the substance was correct as charged, whether there was joint or constructive possession of the substance which could subject the case to a Motion to Dismiss and whether the accused was entrapped into committing the offense by law enforcement or one of its informants.
