When found guilty of a drug crime, the penalties are extremely harsh depending on the charge, criminal history, amount and type of drug involved, and other factors. In addition, if the alleged offense took place within close proximity of a school, church, park, or other public or community facility, penalties may be enhanced. Drug crimes are charged either as a misdemeanor or felony; misdemeanor convictions are punished by a maximum jail term of one year, while a felony may leave you facing as much as 30 years behind bars.Navigating the Criminal Justice System When Charged with a Drug Crime in Florida
