Understanding Drug Charges

Questions About Florida Drug Crimes

What is a drug crime?

A drug crime is a criminal offense that involves a controlled substance, a substance regulated by the government. Some examples of controlled substances include illegal street drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy, as well as prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Vicodin, and Xanax.

What is an unreasonable search and seizure?

An unreasonable search and seizure occurs when law enforcement conducts a search and collects evidence without probable cause or a valid search warrant. Accordingly, any evidence obtained in an unlawful search and seizure should be excluded so it is not used as direct evidence against a defendant in court.

When should I involve a lawyer?

It is important to involve a Miami criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. It does not matter whether you have actually been arrested at this point or whether formal charges have been filed against you.

Your rights and future may be at risk; consulting an attorney will allow you to better understand what is going on and whether you need legal counsel. Particularly in criminal cases, it is better to be safe and ensure that your rights are fully protected.

What are the penalties for a drug crime conviction in Miami, Florida?

The penalties for a Florida drug crime conviction will vary greatly depending on the nature of the offense, such as whether it is simple possession or involves drug trafficking. The type of drug and the amount will also impact sentencing.

A defendant may face imprisonment in state prison or county jail, heavy fines, registration as a narcotics offender, probation, mandatory drug treatment or rehabilitation, and more.
