Caught with drugs? Call for a Consult (321) 452-7055
How our lawyers can help you
Possession of marijuana or any other narcotic substance can result in a suspension of your driver’s license for up to 2 years. Therefore, it is prudent to not plead guilty to any charges without the help of a lawyer. In many cases, your sentence can be reduced or dismissed depending on various factors that influence your case. Our attorneys can file a motion to dismiss evidence if the police searched your vehicle or residence in violation of your constitutional rights. Your attorney can also argue for a lenient sentence with your enrollment in a drug treatment program that is allowed by special drug courts in some Florida counties.
Protect your career with the help of a drug possession attorney
The consequences of drug possession can have a serious impact on your future career no matter which profession you belong to. While a negative background check is sure to set you back, a conviction becomes a public record accessible by anyone in the future. This can prove detrimental to your professional and personal life, which can often be avoided with the help of our lawyers. For example, a First Degree Misdemeanor, which is possession of marijuana of 20 grams or less is punishable by up to a fine of $1000 and jail term of 1 year under Florida Criminal Statute – §893.13(6)(b). In order to deal with the finer aspects of Florida drug possession laws that are complex in nature, it is essential to have an attorney by your side. For a case evaluation you can call our attorneys at Heather Harris Law, to find out ways to maintain a clean record without a jail term or the risk of losing your driver’s license.
