There are many different kinds of drug charges in the State of Florida. Some of the more common charges include: Possession of a Controlled Substance; Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Possession With Intent to Sell; Drug Manufacturing; Drug Trafficking and Prescription Forgery / Fraud.
Depending on the facts of each case including the type of and amount of drugs in question and where the alleged crime occurred, the penalties which may be imposed upon a conviction for a drug crime are wide ranging. Possession of any substance other than marijuana is a third degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison. Possession of certain types and amounts of drugs are punishable by a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years in prison and a $250,000.00 fine.
Many drug cases revolve around the search and seizure of a person, automobile or home. Often times, a search of this type violates an individual’s constitutional rights. In cases such as these it is imperative that you retain an experienced attorney who is well versed in search and seizure case law so that they can draft a Motion to Suppress to keep the illegally obtained evidence from being used against you by the State.
