Orlando Drug Possession Attorney

drug possession lawyers orlandoIn the State of Florida, there exists a zero-tolerance policy regarding drugs. Because of this, prosecutors and law enforcement officers work endlessly to convict anyone who has been accused of a drug crime. This aggressive conviction process extends into possession charges, and regardless of the amount you are found in possession of, you may be facing very serious punishments.

If you or someone you care about has been charged or arrested with possession charges, then you should seek out an experienced drug crime attorney. Your case is unique, but as with any case, there are some similarities found in prior ones. A lawyer with a history in the field will be able to bring this wealth of information to the table in creating your defense. At Grozinger Law, P.A., we take a look at all evidence against you, and put together the best defense while educating you in understanding your legal processes.

Understanding the Penalties

As mentioned above, there are very strict rules regarding crimes committed involving drugs. Most drug cases have a mandatory minimum sentence; so if you are found guilty and convicted, then you will have to face a minimum amount of time in prison or pay fines. Depending on the type of narcotic in your possession, and the amount to which you are found with, you will be facing different levels of charges.

For marijuana you can expect a minimum of up to a year in jail, and should you be found in excess of twenty-five pounds you should prepare for at least three years in prison with $25,000 in fines. If you’d like more information on marijuana laws, you can visit the laws & penalties page on norml.org.

Naturally, cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, and any other strong drug carry a much more severe penalty. In these cases, the standard minimum sentence is five years in prison with a max being thirty. This is also taking into account that this is your first offense of this type. If you are a repeat offender, you may face much more stringent punishments.

Defense to Possession Charges

Being arrested does not guarantee a conviction, and having the right attorney at your side can potentially turn a terrible situation into one that is much better for you. There are a few defenses to these charges, but it’s important to know the particulars that can mean the difference between guilt and innocence.

You are protected under the Constitution from illegal searches and seizures, so if the arresting officer charged you without proper course being taken, then you potentially can be found innocent. However, if the drugs in question were in plain sight, not requiring a warrant, then your chances are slimmer.

It’s also possible that the prosecution will be unable to produce the substance that was found in your possession. Regardless of why this may be, not having evidence against you is a huge benefit in our defensive efforts. It’s because of this that you should always fight charges against you, because the circumstances may prove beneficial to you.

At Grozinger Law, P.A. we strive to protect our clients from any and all charges against them. If you or a loved one is accused of possession, then you should call our offices to find out how we can best help you. You don’t have to do it alone; we’re here with you every step of the way.

I had used Mr Grozinger for my case. He was able to bring my case to a good ending. I found him prompt with returning calls and emails and kept me informed of the changes as they developed. He even followed up during, and even after my case was over to see how I was doing.
