We Handle Criminal Charges for Florida Drug Trafficking
The criminal defense attorneys at The AP Law Group have over 55 years combined experience handling criminal defense cases in the state of Florida. Among those cases are charges of drug trafficking. Drug trafficking is the sale, purchase, possession, manufacturing, importing or transport of illegal drugs in excess of statutory limits as determined by the State of Florida legal system. If you are facing a drug trafficking charge or similar charge in Ocala or Gainesville, we can assist you with aggressive representation and explanation of your rights and options.
Common Penalties for Drug Trafficking Crimes
The penalties for these crimes are contingent on the type of drug and the amount in your possession at the time of the arrest. As the weight increases, so do the fines or prison sentences. A few examples of drug trafficking penalties are; possession and distribution of cocaine, from 28 to 200 grams is a three year mandatory prison sentence and a $50,000 fine; possession and distribution of hydrocodone in the amounts of 14 to 28 grams carries a three year mandatory prison sentence and a $50,000 fine; cannabis possession and distribution, from 25 to 2000 lbs. or 300 to 2000 plants, is a 3 year prison term and $25,000 fine; the possession and distribution of heroin, from 4 to 14 grams is a three year prison sentence and a $50,000 fine.
Drug Trafficking charges are very serious misdemeanor or felony offenses that are prosecuted and punished harshly. If you have a history of felony convictions, there can be enhanced penalties for any new convictions. When arrested on a drug trafficking charge, it is critical to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney, as drug trafficking charges are complicated and the consequences can be severe.
