Dealing with aggressive prosecution of drug charges in Florida

| Jun 20, 2019 | Drug Charges

Our readers probably know that Florida is a hotspot in America when it comes to law enforcement and prosecution crackdowns on illegal drugs, whether it is drug smuggling, dealing, manufacturing or just plain possession. There is no doubt that the plague of illegal drug use has ravaged millions of families in our country, but that doesn’t mean that law enforcement officials can trounce a person’s constitutional rights in pursuit of attempting to win the “War on Drugs.”

If you are arrested on drug charges in Florida, you will face an aggressive prosecution effort. Law enforcement officials and prosecutors do not see drug crimes as “victimless” crimes. They will put forth their best effort to get a severe sentence in almost any drug crime case they are involved in. They may believe that deterring others from being involved with illegal drugs is the goal, or they may believe that individuals with drug problems can chose another option, even if there is significant scientific evidence that drug and alcohol addiction are diseases.

The penalties for being convicted on a drug charge can be significant. A defendant may face years in prison, state or federal. That is why a strong criminal defense strategy is necessary. There are various ways to attack the prosecution’s case and a strong criminal defense lawyer often knows tactics the prosecution uses to pressurize defendants.

At our law firm, we do our best to take the time to help our clients come up with the best strategy for each unique case. There is always quite a bit on the line in a drug case. For more information, please visit the drug charge overview section of our law firm’s website.
