Drug offenses can include anything from possession, sale, manufacturing, distribution, or trafficking. The potential penalties are as numerous as the different types of charges. Drug offenses might not only affect you at the State level, but can also be prosecuted federally, which is why you need an experienced defense attorney to represent you in court. Some drug offenses carry minimum mandatory sentences. Convictions involving drugs can impact multiple areas of your life including your ability to work and drive.
If you have been arrested for a drug charge, it is important to seek experienced legal counsel who can advise you on your allegations and your defense. There are multiple issues to investigate, specifically with regards to the Fourth Amendment which protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures. The Law Offices of Kelli J. Bynum, P.A. can counsel you on the presence of such issues and argue them to the court through motions to suppress.
The Florida Statute governing drug abuse prevention and control is Chapter 893.
