Drug Crimes in Hollywood

The potential punishment for a drug crime in the State of Florida depends on the type and amount of the drug or illicit substance in question. Under Florida Statutes §893.13, any individual convicted of selling, manufacturing, or delivering any of the following drugs may face a second-degree Felony charge:

  • Heroin
  • Codeine
  • Fentanyl
  • Opium

If you are convicted of a second-degree Felony, you may face up to 15 years in prison, according to Fla. Stat. §775.082. You may have to pay a fine of $10,000. Since a second-degree Felony can lead to prison time, any person facing a drug charge should call a Hollywood drug Lawyer at Leifert & Leifert immediately for a free consultation.

Other Drug Felonies

As stated by Fla. Stat. §893.13, the sale, manufacture, or delivery of any of the following drugs is a third-degree Felony in the State of Florida:

  • Cannabis
  • Peyote
  • Anabolic steroids

Other controlled substances, which could include certain phenobarbital compounds, may also trigger third-degree Felony charges.

Misdemeanor Drug Crimes

Certain drug crimes are punishable as Misdemeanors rather than Felonies. The unauthorized selling or distribution of certain compounds that have accepted medical uses may be punishable as a first-degree Misdemeanor.

Drug Trafficking Charges

Florida also punishes drug trafficking, which generally encompasses the selling, manufacture, delivery, or transport across state lines of controlled substances. Those possessing large amounts of drugs may also be prosecuted for drug trafficking.

A person that possesses over 25 pounds of cannabis may be charged with a first-degree Felony. The possession of 28 grams or more of cocaine is also a first-degree Felony.

Under Florida law, first-degree felonies may result in up to 30 years in prison. Those convicted may need to pay a fine of up to $10,000, as stated by Fla. Stat. §775.083. Any person charged with possessing large amounts of controlled substances is recommended contact a Hollywood drug Attorney at Leifert and Leifert for a consultation.

Defenses Against Drug Charges

Those charged with possession, intention to sell, or intention to distribute drugs may be able to claim that they did not know they had an illegal substance in their possession. Challenging the legality of any search, arrest, or seizure of property may also be possible, as may challenging a charge of drug trafficking when you had no intention of transporting or selling the drugs in question. Your dedicated legal counsel could discuss what defense strategy may be appropriate for your particular case.
