The importation, selling, or distribution of unlawful controlled substances, such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines and other drugs is known as drug trafficking. Depending on the circumstances, drug trafficking can be classified as a state or federal crime. No matter what, convictions for drug trafficking in Florida carry severe penalties that include a minimum prison sentence.
If you are facing drug trafficking charges on the federal or state level, you need to seek out an experienced Florida drug trafficking lawyer who will aggressively fight for the best outcome for you and your case. At the Law Office of A. Randall Haas, I have over 29 years of criminal defense experience, handling hundreds of clients on charges of drug crimes, including drug trafficking.
Felony Drug Charges And Drug Trafficking
Felony drug trafficking charges in Florida can be based on “knowingly having actual or constructive possession” of an illegal drug. Simply put, the state must be able to prove that you knew that you had illegal drugs on you in order to achieve a drug trafficking conviction. However, there are many elements that your Florida drug trafficking lawyer can question as part of your defense, such as vehicle stops, the searches used to find the drugs, or other circumstances that led to the discovery of drugs. I will work my hardest to thoroughly investigate the charges against your and to develop an effectual defense strategy.
My firm also handles a wide range of other Florida drug charges, including:
- Possession And Possession For Sale
- Sale For Distribution
- Conspiracy To Distribute
- Cultivation And Manufacturing
