Florida Heavily Penalized Drug Trafficking
You need to know what you’re up against—drug trafficking in
Florida is a First degree felony, which means you could easily expect
to spend at least one year in prison if convicted.
As with any drug crime, the type of drug and amount determine the consequences:
- 3 years in prison and $25,000 in fines for up to 2,000 pounds of marijuana
- 7 years in prison and $50,000 in fines for 2,000-10,000 pounds of marijuana
- 3 years in prison and $25,000 in fines for 28 to 200 grams of cocaine
- 3 years in prison and $50,000 in fines for 4 to 14 grams of heroin
Even though judges have some discretion when it comes to sentencing, there
are still state minimums for prison time which are defined by statute.
Further, your sentences could be enhanced if your offense took place in
or near a school or other protected zone.
We Provide Redoubtable Defenses
Our Miami criminal defense lawyer can use all the tools at their disposal
to protect you from a conviction. A common drug defense is that your Fourth
Amendment rights were violated in some way. Police are required to follow
the law, too, when they stop you or search you, your vehicle, or your
home or your charges could be dropped.
Sometimes, prosecutors aren’t even able to produce the drugs you
are accused of trafficking as a result of the many hands through which
they may have passed since your arrest. No matter the specifics of your
charge, our firm is ready to protect your future.
