Sale or Distribution
Selling and distributing drugs is typically a felony offense in Florida. Depending upon the type of drug you are accused of selling or distributing, you may face a state prison sentence of 5, 15 or 30 years in state prison. If you are accused of selling drugs within a certain distance of a school or to minors, you will face more severe penalties.
Have you or a loved one been accused of drug sale or distribution in Florida? If so, you could be facing years in state prison. Only an experienced criminal defense attorney will stand a chance of defending your charges and helping you avoid the severe penalties that come with a drug crime conviction. In addition to jail time, you may face the following penalties:
- Probation / parole
- Community service
- Drug counseling

Additionally, a conviction on your criminal record could mean that your employment opportunities are limited and you cannot provide for yourself or your family. Don't allow a false accusation to ruin your life. Don't allow the evidence that was gathered illegally to put you behind bars.
