Drug Crimes

Florida vigorously prosecutes drug crimes on both state and federal levels with agencies pursuing arrests and convictions in their "war on drugs" campaigns.  Consequently, even first time offenders can face serious penalties and a permanent criminal record.  Some first offenders may be able to have their case dismissed after completing a court-mandated substance abuse treatment program while under probation. However, if convicted, you may be facing county jail time or state prison with possible minimum mandatories, community supervision, court-ordered drug counseling and suspension of driving privileges. The sentence will be determined by the charges and evidence against you, the facts of your case, the type and amount of drugs found in your possession, who was involved and any prior convictions.  If you are charged with a drug crime, it is important to speak with an attorney about the specifics of your situation as early as possible.  Common illegal substances include marijuana, cocaine, ecstacy, methamphetamine, heroin and controlled substances include Xanax, Oxycodone, Oxycontin and Valium.  Drug crimes generally consist of:
  • Possession

  • Sale, manufacturing, delivery

  • Trafficking

  • Conspiracy

  • Dr. Shopping

  • Prescription fraud

  • Withholding information from a practice

  • Paraphernalia
