Miami Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

Defending Against Drug Crime Charges in Florida

Have you been arrested or charged with a drug crime? If so, you need the help of a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. An attorney at the Tomas Law Firm has provided excellent criminal defense to clients facing drug offense charges. They can handle virtually any type of drug case including possession, sales, trafficking, or distribution. Prosecutors will zealously go after any defendant accused of a drug crime to the fullest extent of the law.

Depending on the type of drug and amount involved, it could be a felony offense rather than just a misdemeanor. Nevertheless, both felony and misdemeanor convictions for any drug crime can carry very serious penalties including jail and hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines. Make sure you have a defense lawyer on your side that will really fight for your rights if you were accused of drug possession, drug dealing or distribution (possession with intent), drug trafficking, illegal possession of prescription drugs, prescription fraud, DUI due to drug use, and others. A Miami criminal defense attorney at the firm has handled cases involving marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, ecstasy, LSD, meth or methamphetamines, oxycodone, prescription drugs, etc.

Types of Drug Crimes We Handle

  • Possession -Possession of an illegal narcotic is one of the least severe drug crimes, but should still be taken seriously. Possession can involve personal use or possession with intent (to sell or distribute). Possession for personal use is commonly charged as a misdemeanor.
  • Sales - If you were arrested and charged for selling drugs, you could face a felony conviction. The severity of drug sale charges will vary drastically depending on the type and amount of the drug in your possession.
  • Distribution - The distribution of a controlled substance without a license is often charged as a felony offense. It is closely tied to drug trafficking. Drug distributors could be tied to gangs in some situations
  • Trafficking - The trafficking of narcotics is the crime of transporting the drugs across state lines. If the trafficking is charged as a federal offense, this could be because the drugs crossed U.S. borders (came in from a foreign country).

A conviction for possession of even a small amount of cocaine, for example, can result in years in prison, thousands of dollars in fines, extensive community service, mandatory substance abuse program enrolment and more. According to the Florida Statutes §893.13 (2011), the penalties will vary depending on the type of drug found in your possession as well as the amount. If there were any other aggravating factors such as other crimes or the use of a deadly weapon, the penalties could be enhanced. Also, if the offense took place within 1,000 feet of a school or facility which cared for children, the penalties could increase.
