Key West Drug Crimes Laws
A Florida drug charge can have a major negative impact on your life. Drug charges in Florida range from misdemeanor possession to felonies, including drug trafficking. Felony drug charges in Florida carry harsh penalties, including years of prison time and very high fines. If you are facing a serious drug charge, your entire future may be literally hanging in the balance.
When you are looking at such serious consequences, you need a tough and experienced Florida criminal defense lawyer by your side. You could have several legal defenses to drug charges. Police must have a valid search warrant with probable cause in order to enter your home without consent. Searches of other areas, including your vehicle, are often done without legal justification and can result in the evidence against you being thrown out. Officers may violate your rights at other stages of the process, including obtaining statements without reading your Miranda rights.
