Florida Drug Trafficking Attorney

Few crimes are taken as seriously in the state of Florida as drug trafficking. Lawyers experienced in defending clients accused of drug offenses can prove invaluable should you find yourself in the same predicament. In Florida, lawyers of drug trafficking clients know that the higher the quantity found in a person’s possession, the more likely the simple drug possession case will shift to a drug trafficking case. Drug trafficking in Florida is a very serious offense, and the government views the drugs as a major cause of crime in the state. Consequently, courts deals with those convicted of drug trafficking very harshly.

As Florida drug trafficking lawyers can attest, the State will vigorously prosecute even those who are not higher up in a drug trafficking ring, seeking at least the minimum mandatory prison sentence in order to send a “message” to the drug community at large. Even someone who is not an actual “drug dealer,” but someone who simply possessed a high quantity for personal use, may well find him or herself spending a lot of time in prison for supposed drug trafficking.

Those convicted of drug trafficking (or possessing large quantities of drugs) often face harsh penalties ranging from mandatory fines and prison sentences, to length probation periods or such civil penalties as forfeiture of homes, vehicles, or cash assets that the government believes are tied to the drug trade. Those finding themselves accused of this serious criminal offense should seek out the services of a skilled and experienced Florida drug trafficking lawyer.

Courts consider several factors when deciding what sentence to hand down to those convicted of drug trafficking. Florida drug crimes lawyers will stress whichever weigh most heavily in their client’s favor, such as first time offenses, the client’s age (especially if particularly young or old), the absence of any violence or weapons at the time the defendant was arrested, and the like. The Court will also look at factors such as the level of a defendant’s involvement in the prohibited conduct, the location (i.e. whether the trafficking offense occurred near a school), and the presence or lack of any minors.
