Kissimmee Drug Crime Lawyer
Skilled Attorneys That Can Protect Your Rights
The state of Florida aggressively prosecutes people accused of any type
of drug crime. Laws that surround drugs and drug usage are very strict,
and individuals do not have to be "hardened" criminals to be
accused of committing an alleged drug crime. Even first-time offenders
who made a momentary mistake or simply didn't know that what they
were doing was illegal could face serious and life-changing penalties
upon conviction. The state may even require mandatory minimum prison sentences
- even for first-time offenders.

Types of Charges Melendez Law Offices, P.A. Handles
Defined as the intentional act of selling, purchasing, manufacturing,
delivering, possessing, or transporting controlled substances, drug trafficking
offenses carry serious penalties. Florida Statutes 893.135 provides for
minimum and mandatory prison sentences and fines for drug trafficking.
Your penalties can be enhanced depending on the amount and the type of
drug that you have been accused of trafficking.
Much like drug trafficking charges, possession of controlled substance
charges can be increased or decreased depending on the type and the amount
of drugs involved. Our firm can defend your rights if you have been arrested
for possession of marijuana, cocaine, illegal prescription medications,
or drug paraphernalia.
Although the state of Florida has been taking steps toward passing medical
marijuana laws, illegal possession of marijuana can lead to significant
penalties. Even for first-time offenders, illegal possession or use of
marijuana can carry mandatory penalties. If you were arrested for possession,
sale, delivery, trafficking, or possession of marijuana paraphernalia,
call our firm immediately.

Any drug crime conviction can carry serious penalties. In the state of
Florida, a drug crime conviction may result in deportation or other
immigration-related issues. If you have been arrested for a drug crime, it is important to remember
that you have rights. Just because you have been arrested for a crime
does not mean that you will be convicted of the crime. With the right
representation, there could be potential defenses available to you.
