Drug Possession Charges Carry Severe Penalties In Florida
Although manufacturing, distribution and trafficking are the most serious drug crime charges, Florida takes possession charges seriously, as well. The stakes are high, even with simple possession of small amounts of marijuana, cocaine, heroin or even prescription drugs if you do not have a valid prescription. It is essential to work with a criminal defense attorney who can help defend you against these charges.
The state of Florida takes drug crimes seriously, and the penalties can be severe for a conviction of possession or another drug crime charge. In Florida:
- If you are convicted of any drug possession offense, you can have your driver’s license suspended.
- Simple possession can result in fines, jail time, court costs, fines and other consequences.
- Cocaine possession of any amount is a felony, subjecting you to up to five years in prison.
- Possession of any narcotics for which you do not have a valid prescription is a third-degree felony.
Whatever type of drug possession charges you are facing, I will work hard to protect your rights, help you understand your options and fight for your freedom.
