Drug Charges & Trafficking
A conviction of the most minor misdemeanor drug offense can severely impact your life. If convicted, your driver’s license could be suspended for two years.
These charges are felonies. The important concerns to take into consideration will be the classification of the controlled substance, the amount and where the offense took place. If the offense occurred within 1,000 feet of a school or church, the penalties will then be enhanced.
Trafficking in a controlled substance
These charges are very serious in the state of Florida. Trafficking charges usually carry a minimum of 3 years in prison.
Possession with intent
In the state of Florida, the defendant may face felony charges for drug possession with the intent to sell or to distribute. This offense is more serious that simple possession. You can be charged with possession with intent if in your possession is found baggies, scales or large amounts of cash, may be considered to show the intent to sell or distribute, as well as large quantities of drugs.
