Drug charges cover a broad range of offenses, from the less severe, such as possession of a small amount of certain drugs, to the more serious, such as participation in an ongoing drug-related criminal enterprise or manufacturing and distributing drugs. It may also involve the use, sale, possession, trafficking, or distribution of illegal substances such as: cocaine, marijuana, crack, PCP, ecstasy, LSD, heroin, opiates, and unauthorized prescription medications, such as Zanax. In recent years, the Florida has become more and more strict with both penalties for conviction of drug crimes. If you are convicted, it is very likely that you will spend time in jail, pay hefty fines and/or attend drug or alcohol treatment.
Even minor drug charges can be stressful, and carry the risk of serious penalties upon conviction; the more serious charges, of course, can give rise to even more severe penalties and punishment. An experienced criminal defense attorney can take some of the fear out of drug charges by answering questions and advising and guiding the accused through the complex legal process that awaits. We are known for the personal attention we give to our clients and leaving no stone unturned in defense of our clients
Due to the fact that even minor drug charges can result in a criminal record that can last a lifetime, it is critical to speak with a skilled criminal defense attorney ASAP in order to protect your rights against a Florida or federal drug charge.
The U.S. judicial system is divided into state and federal courts. Whether a person accused of a drug crime is prosecuted in the federal or state criminal system depends, among others, on what specific laws were violated and the severity of the charges. A clear majority of drug offenses are filed in the state courts.
