Understand what You are Facing
You face a host of penalties with drug possession charges including not
just jail time, but heavy fines, probation, and the possible loss or suspension
of your drivers’ license.
Depending on the type of drugs and the amount, penalties
- 25 years in prison for 28 grams of prescription drugs
- 3 years in prison and $50,000 in fines for 28 grams of cocaine
- At least 1 year in jail and $1,000 in fines for 20 grams or less of marijuana
- At least 5 years in jail and a $5,000 fine for possession of over 20 grams
No matter the details of your drug charges, you have rights as the accused—rights
that our Miami criminal defense lawyer can fight to protect. Four decades
of experience has taught us how to handle and outwork prosecutors. It
helps you that I have been a prosecutor.
We are Tough When it Comes to Possession Charges
How “possession” is defined by the state can make it tricky
to prove beyond reasonable doubt you are guilty of your drug charges.
You need to know such drugs you are accused of possessing existed and
were close at hand, even if they were not found on your person. In addition,
how law enforcement came upon the drugs can be thoroughly scrutinized:
if they proceeded in some way which violated your Fourth Amendment protections
against illegal searches and seizures in some way, our Miami drug crime
attorney can use this to try and have your case thrown out.
Our firm has a track-record of upholding our clients’ rights—do
not wait to reach out to Rothman & Associates, P.A. to begin building
an effective legal defense.
