The possession of any controlled substance is considered a felony in Florida. If you possess enough of any given substance, such as twenty-eight grams of cocaine, you could find yourself facing federal trafficking charges. With different mandatory minimum prison sentences based on the amount you are accused of carrying, it is important to fight to lower the charges you face.
The one exception is for some possession of marijuana cases. The possession of less than twenty grams of cannabis is considered a misdemeanor, but anything more is considered a felony.
When building your defense, our attorneys will take a close look at the specific circumstances surrounding your drug crimes arrest. A bad traffic stop could involve the failure to follow police procedures or unlawful search and seizure. If there is a way to fight your case and have the charges thrown out, it is our job to find it.
