Drug Possession Defense Attorney

Experienced Defense Against Drug Possession Charges in Orlando and Central Florida

In the State of Florida and on the Federal level, the penalties for being found in "Possession" of illegal or unprescribed drugs can be severe and may result in harsh punishments with serious repercussions.

Drug Possession Penalties

The potential penalties for drug possession include:

The penalties can also be enhanced if you are found to be in possession "with the intent to sell or distribute" the drugs. Many factors are taken into consideration when determining what penalty, if any, will apply to you in the event that you are sentenced on a drug charge.  A few factors to be considered are whether you have a prior criminal record, the type of drug involved, and the quantity found in your possession.

Possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of not more than 20 grams of marijuana are both classified as first degree misdemeanors in Florida, punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1000 fine.  If someone is found in possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, or any amount of cocaine or other controlled substances such as heroin, ecstasy, or even unprescribed prescription medication, those crimes are considered at least third degree felonies, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5000 fine. Whatever you have been charged with, it is vital that you hire a competent and experienced lawyer.  You need Jack Kaleita in your corner.

To be guilty of drug possession, a person has to be in the actual or constructive possession of the substance.
