Drug Charge FAQ
Mandatory 2 year license revocation for any Drug Conviction
In Florida, if you are convicted of any drug offense, whether it be possession of Cocaine, Crack Cocaine, Marijuana, Meth, Crystal meth, Methamphetamine, Heroin, ecstasy (principally MDMA), LSD, Mushrooms, PCP, your license will be revoked for 2 years.
For instance, if you possess more than 20 grams of marijuana, or even possess one crack rock, you are facing up to five years in prison plus fines and court costs. If the amounts of drugs are higher, you may be charged with a first degree felony, punishable by up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.
Mandatory Minimum Prison Sentences
For drug trafficking offenses, there are minimum mandatory prison sentences. For instance, if you traffic in more than 200 grams of cocaine, there is a 7 year minimum mandatory prison sentence. Also, drug trafficking is punishable by life in prison and a $500,000 fine.
Defenses to get your Case Dropped
As a general rule, police or federal agents may not enter your house or hotel room without a search warrant. If the government violates your fourth amendment rights, your drug case may be suppressed, or thrown out of court. Also, if the drugs are not found on your person, that may be a valid defense. I talk more about this via video on my homepage. Early intervention in Florida criminal defense matters, specifically drug offenses, can be essential to getting your charges reduced or dropped.
When drug treatment instead of prison time is negotiated, I will work with drug counselors to get you back on your feet. As a Florida drug defense lawyer, I help good people who have drug charges like: cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, pot, weed, meth, crystal meth, methamphetamine, heroin, prescription drugs, oxycontin, ecstasy (principally MDMA), LSD, mushrooms, and PCP.
