Tampa Drug Sales Defense Lawyer
Accused of Selling Drugs in Tampa?
Possession and possession with intent to distribute are serious drug crimes in Florida, but charges and penalties can be ratcheted up to a higher level when sale of an illegal drug is involved. Although possession of illegal narcotics and paraphernalia are serious matters, prosecutors and police often more aggressively pursue those who are selling the drugs. Penalties in drug sale cases are always more severe than simple possession, and bring with them guaranteed felony charges. Finding yourself arrested and facing such charges can be a frightening prospect, and you no doubt have countless questions about how to proceed and how you will be affected. Contacting a Tampa drug crimes lawyer can help alleviate your fears and give you answers to your questions about how to defend your case.
In drug sales cases, it must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that someone actually sold or distributed an illegal drug such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin or meth for money, something of value or the promise of this exchange. Key testimony is usually provided by witnesses, informants or from an undercover law enforcement officer who purchased the drugs directly. Depending on where the drugs were sold and what type of drug was distributed, felony charges can range from 3rd to 1st degree. If you are convicted, you will face years in prison, hefty fines, and carry with you a criminal record for the rest of your life.
