Any drug crime is serious, but when you are being charged for a federal drug time, you face much harsher consequences and much more aggressive prosecution. The federal government vigorously pursues federal drug crime convictions. They have seemingly bottomless resources at their disposal and will come at you hard if your case goes to trial. You need an aggressive Florida drug lawyer to go head-to-head with the prosecution in your defense.
I am a criminal defense attorney serving Florida who has been defending clients facing federal drug charges for more than three decades. The Law Offices of A. Randall Haas has earned quite a reputation for successfully resolving the cases of my federal drug crimes clients.
Penalties for Drug Possession in Florida
Along with the drug crimes of cultivation, distribution, and trafficking, Florida drug possession charges carry severe penalties that will follow you for the rest of your life. These penalties include:
- Jail or prison time
- Permanent mark on your criminal record
- Community service
- Lack of access to employment opportunities, financial aid, and other life opportunities
The best way to build a strong defense is by contacting an experienced Florida drug lawyer as soon as you possibly can. By getting a Florida federal drug crime defense attorney involved as early as possible in the process, we will be able to thoroughly investigate the facts and evidence in your case to increase the chances of you getting your charges reduced or even dismissed.
I will thoroughly analyze the initial encounter or stop with the police to see if there were any errors in the search of your person, home, or vehicle that led to your arrest. If there was an illegal search and seizure of evidence, your Florida federal drug crime defense lawyer will work to get that evidence removed.
