Different Types of Drug Crimes in Florida

Depending upon the specific drug crime, the amount of drugs in question, and other circumstances, an individual may be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.

Drug crimes may include, but are not limited to:

  • Drug possession
  • Obtaining a controlled substance by fraud
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Drug trafficking
  • Sale and/or delivery
  • Attempted sale of illegal drugs or controlled substances
  • Possession of paraphernalia or manufacturing equipment
  • Distributing illegal drugs or controlled substances
  • Manufacturing and cultivation

Penalties for a drug charge conviction may vary based upon factors such as weight, amount, intent, type of drug, and, in some cases, how the drugs were obtained. Depending upon the specific drug crime a person is charged with and the evidence gathered, the penalties may range from a misdemeanor punishable by up to 30 days in jail to a first-degree felony punishable by up to life imprisonment.

Some drug crimes may require the prosecution to prove intent, such as the sale of illegal drugs. The law has provisions that dictate that a specific amount of a certain type of drug shows intent. In other drug cases, possession must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. Physical control of the drug is a factor that will be argued relating to possession.

Drug Possession

One of the most common drug charges is possession of a controlled substance. In order to be convicted, generally the government must prove that the defendant has:

  • Intentionally and knowingly possessed a controlled substance
  • With a quantity that is enough for sale or personal use
  • And is without a valid prescription

The possession of drug paraphernalia can also cause possible drug charges.

Search and Seizure

One common defense to a drug charge, is that the police unlawfully detained and obtained evidence (search and seizure). A Kissimmee drug crimes attorney can help to prove if the police violated your Fourth Amendment rights when finding and seizing drug evidence. This can cause the evidence to not be admissible in court.
