Many people are not aware that Florida is at the top of the list when it comes to drug charges for prescription medications such as oxycodone, a drug prescribed in 2011 10 times more than in any other U.S. state. Not only are marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and other illicit substances problematic, prescription drugs are as well. Police aggressively pursue those they suspect are involved in manufacturing or selling/distributing illegal drugs and narcotics.
Some of the most common drug charges we have experienced success in representing clients accused of include:
There are many factors that impact the criminal penalties or sanctions a person may face if found guilty of various drug charges. Whether you are arrested and charged with possession, distribution, or manufacturing, the type and amount of illegal substance involved will be a factor. If the alleged offense occurred within close proximity of a school, park, church, or other public or community facility, penalties may be enhanced. A prior criminal conviction for drug charges may also affect the severity of punishment. Penalties may include substantial fines that range in the tens of thousands of dollars, to decades in prison, along with a permanent criminal record.Contact Adams & Luka Today
