The sale of a controlled substance can be charged on both the state and federal levels. Penalties can vary greatly depending on the type and amount of a drug as well as the accused’s past criminal history. If convicted, a person may be facing decades in jail, substantial fines, and a mark on his or her criminal record.
Due to the nature of drug crimes, without an aggressive defense, a defendant might be charged with related offenses such as possession or manufacturing. If the controlled substance in question exceeds a specific weight, a person may even be charged with drug trafficking, which can carry mandatory minimum sentences. The specific threshold required for a trafficking charge differs for each substance and can be the difference between facing years in prison and a term of probation. Our attorneys can protect you from prosecutors who may be looking to pin you with any number of charges.
The actions you take directly after an arrest can play a critical role in the overall success of your case. You have the right to an attorney and our firm can provide the powerhouse representation you need to protect your freedom. Did the arresting officer have probable cause? Was an illegal search of your property conducted? Our Miami criminal defense lawyers can explore every legal pathway in order to maximize the strength of your defense.
