Helping you assert a defense against drug possession charges

The state of Florida has been cracking down on drug crimes, and this is evident in the penalties one could face if convicted. Whether it is minor possession, possession with the intent to distribute or drug trafficking, drug charges have the ability to follow a person around. Whether it is their personal or professional reputation, having a drug charge on one's record could impact a person for the rest of their life.

Drug charges in Florida and elsewhere can carry with them significant penalties. While some minor drug crimes have minor consequences, if the accused has a criminal record, facing even a minor drug charge could have significant outcomes if convicted. Thus, it is also important to take these charges seriously, especially if one is accused of a lager operation.

What is a conspiracy charge?

Facing allegations of a drug crime can be difficult. In some cases, those accused are faced with the challenging task of trying to clear his or her name when there are presumed accomplices involved. Drug charges can range greatly, and they depend on the factors of the situation. When more than one person is involved, this could result in a drug conspiracy charge. Such a charge could result in harsher penalties if a conviction occurs.

How serious are drug possession charges?

Police stop individuals for various reasons. In some instances, a driver may be speeding and is pulled over. In other cases, an officer might be suspicious of someone's activities and decides to stop and question that individual. In these or other instances, a search could be conducted. And, during this search, drugs could be uncovered. In these matters, the accused could face drug possession charges.

Law strengthened to enhance sentences for repeat offenders

Criminal allegations means different things to different people; however, it is likely an overwhelming and stressful time for anyone no matter the severity of the crime. For those with a criminal history, facing a criminal charge can be more problematic, as it is likely that past convictions could result in more serious penalties if a conviction occurs. Therefore, those facing drug charges should understand how current laws could impact sentencing.

Asserting a defense against drug possession charges

Like most states, Florida has cracked down on drug crimes. While this means addressing problems and issues associated with drug use and distribution, it also means many individuals facing serious penalties if they are suspected of committing a drug crime. Because the criminal consequences can be harsh, it is vital for those accused of such a crime to explore their criminal defense options.

Individuals in Florida and elsewhere are aware that a person facing a criminal charge could be facing multiple charges stemming from one event. For example, a simple traffic violation could cause officers to search the vehicle, resulting in drug charges because of drugs found in possession of the motorist. In other cases, the commission of another crime may have resulted in a search and the uncovering of an illegal substance. This too could result in a drug crime being charged against the accused offender.

Available defenses for drug possession

Whether you are stopped for a traffic violation, were served a warrant to search your residence or were stopped on the street on the suspicion of a crime, being subjected to a search is an overwhelming and uncomfortable process. One is likely to feel vulnerable and on edge, wondering what may come of this search. If law enforcement uncovers an illegal substance, this could result in drug charges.

In some cases, narcotics and other drugs could be uncovered, resulting in drug charges. For some defendants, a drug charge may not be the underlying charge he or she is facing; however, these drug charges can be just as or even more serious when it comes to the potential criminal consequences.
