Should you or a loved one be arrested or under investigation for a state or federal drug charge, you should know:
- Law enforcement authorities and prosecutors aggressively prosecute both Florida state laws and federal laws that apply to narcotics crimes. Drug crimes, such as, narcotics possession, trafficking or sales could have you facing misdemeanor and/or felony charges.
- The criminal penalties for a narcotics charge are severe.
- The Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 provides legal authority to law enforcement to seize your assets as proceeds from narcotics related offenses.
In the State of Florida, our state legislature along with federal lawmakers have adopted a “zero tolerance” for narcotics crimes. Laws imposing increased punishments have been passed making any drug crime conviction a significant and life-altering situation for the defendant. These charges can carry severe penalties, such as expensive fines, lengthy probation, jail sentences and/or state prison terms and can qualify as a “strike” under Florida’s Three Strike system. You can be assured that if you have been arrested and charged with a narcotics offense in the State of Florida, the prosecuting attorney will be working double time to ensure you are convicted.
