The criminal charge of drug distribution involves the act of selling or giving illegal narcotics or prescription drugs to others. In Florida, this is a felony offense. The specific penalties that may be enforced will depend on the type of drug as well as the amount involved, the defendant's prior criminal record, and where the offense took place. Distributing or selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a school, church or similar facility will lead to enhanced penalties and the possibility of a defendant facing a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment in a Florida state prison.
