Types of Drug Crimes
In the city of Orlando alone there were more than 1.5 million dollars in drugs recovered by the police last year. The state of Florida has a zero-tolerance policy regarding drugs, and depending on the type and amount your crime involves, you may need serious legal counsel. It’s important to know what the distinctions are between the various types of drug crimes that exist. Should you fall into any of these categories, we urge you to contact us.
There are many kinds of drugs, and therefore there are many different charges associated with being found with them in your possession. Depending on the amount and the type you are going to be facing different punishments. They can be either misdemeanors or felonies, but regardless of what they are, they can seriously harm your future. Don’t let your life be affected by something so small; have an experienced drug possession attorney fight for you.
Sale of Narcotics
Possession for use is significantly different than possession with intent to sell and/or deliver. In fact, these instances are viewed more strongly, mainly because of the purpose behind selling and distributing. This is because you are spreading drugs to those who otherwise may not have it, and since drugs are so heavily scrutinized in the state of Florida, this is even more severe. You may be looking at tens of thousands of dollars and several years in prison.
Since this is an exaggerated form of the previous charge, it therefore carries much harsher penalties. The minimum sentencing for a drug trafficking conviction is $25,000 in fines, and 3 years in prison. Maximum penalties can reach $200,000, so it’s imperative that you seek out an experienced attorney who can best defend you.
Prescription Fraud and Forgery
Prescription drugs have more red tape around them, because of their nature, and when there is an attempt at cheating the system, it’s punishable by law. Making prescriptions available to those who have not received one legally carries with it serious punishments and must be fiercely defended in a court of law. If you’re accused of these crimes, contact us today.
