Orlando MDMA Charges Attorney

Molly/MDMA Charges 

In the state of Florida, possessing or selling MDMA (also referred to as Molly or Ecstasy) will result in life-changing consequences for those convicted. Because it is a Schedule I controlled substance which means there is a high potential for addiction/abuse, cases involving Molly/MDMA are prosecuted vigorously. Schedule I drugs are considered the most dangerous of all, and serve no medical purpose. If you are under investigation or have been arrested for possession of Molly or Ecstasy, it is vital you consult with a highly skilled and capable Orlando drug crime defense attorney immediately. At Adams & Luka, we provide aggressive, effective legal guidance and support for those whose freedom and future may be in jeopardy.

MDMA, or methylenedioxymethamphetamine, gives the user a euphoric high and is a hallucinogenic drug whose use has become more popular in recent years. In Florida, it is illegal to possess any amount of Molly; even a trace that most would consider microscopic could leave you facing criminal charges. While possession is a serious enough allegation, you may face drug trafficking or possession with intent charges if found to have more than 10 grams of MDMA/Molly. This could ultimately result in criminal penalties that are extremely harsh for those convicted.

Molly/MDMA Criminal Penalties in Orlando & Central Florida

The penalties an individual will face if found guilty of charges involving Molly or Ecstasy depend on whether that person is convicted of possession, or possession with intent or trafficking.

The penalties for possession (less than 10 grams) of Molly include:

  • Maximum of five years probation
  • Maximum of five years in prison
  • Fines of up to $5,000
  • One year driver's license revocation

The penalties for trafficking MDMA depend on the amount of drug involved, and include:

  • 10 to 199 grams - Maximum of 30 years in prison, fines of up to $50,000 with a mandatory minimum of three years in prison
  • 200 to 399 grams - Maximum of 30 years in prison, fines of up to $100,000, with a mandatory minimum of seven years in prison
  • 400 to 29 kilograms - Maximum of 30 years in prison, fines of up to $500,000, with a mandatory minimum of fifteen years in prison
  • One year driver's license revocation

As is evident by the above, the penalties for Molly or MDMA charges in Orlando are extremely harsh. Ultimately, you could lose your freedom for a number of years, not to mention the damage to your career, reputation, and relationships.

Client Reviews

I would like thank my attorney Thomas Luka. I knew from the beginning I had the right guy in my corner. While celebrating with family and friends at a Public Park in Seminole County, a fight broke out among various people. Myself, and a good friend, broke up the fight and the instigators left. Six months later, I was wrongly accused as the person who started the fight. The first attorney I hired could not even get a response from the State Attorney handling the case. Someone referred me to Tom and I felt comfortable at his demeanor and reactions.

After conversations with Tom, who knew I would settle for nothing less than a FULL DISMISSAL due to my innocence, I hired him. His firm of Adams and Luka did the due diligence by interviewing witnesses and the police who were on the scene, as well as starting a dialogue with the State Attorney. After gathering statements from witnesses, Tom was able to present a strong argument on my behalf to the State Attorney on why the case should be dismissed. If the State Attorney was not willing to dismiss the case, Tom was ready to take the case to trial.

The result by Thomas Luka: Case Dismissed.

I am 53 years old with a spotless record and glad to keep it that way thanks to the time, effort, hard work, and professionalism of the Adams and Luka and Tom Luka.

Thomas Luka left a life-long great impression of lawyers. He was always professional, on time, and answered things honestly. From the start and during the 14 months it went on - Tom was very upfront and honest with me about the possible outcomes. The result was better than I had hoped for. Tom really over-delivered.
