An Overview Of Drug Offenses
Representing You In All Types Of Drug-Related Cases
The state of Florida has some of the strictest drug laws in the country. If you are suspected of possessing, selling, manufacturing, delivering, or trafficking marijuana or any type of controlled substance, you may face serious felony charges, costly fines, and possibly a lengthy prison sentence. If you are facing any type of drug-related charges, your first step should be to contact the Cobb Criminal Defense Law Firm to discuss how we can help with your case.
Helping You Avoid The Harsh Penalties Of Florida Drug Charges
Florida law sets out severe consequences for drug-related crimes, and studies indicate that prison sentences for drug crimes have nearly doubled in length over the last couple of decades. For this reason, it is more important than ever to retain qualified defense attorney for help with your drug case. The sentence you may face for a drug crime depends on several factors, such as the amount of drugs that were in question and whether prosecutors allege that you simply possessed the drugs for personal use, possessed them with intent to sell, participated in a trafficking operation or other acts. For example, you may face probation for a simple possession of a small amount of marijuana, compared to first degree felony charges and up to 30 years in prison for trafficking a large amount of cocaine. Fortunately, there are a number of defenses that are possible in drug-related cases, including but not limited to the following:
- Challenging that you actually or constructively possessed the drugs
- Challenging that you intended to sell the drugs
- Fourth Amendment search and seizure issues
- Having a prescription for the drugs
- Forensic lab errors
