Do I Need a Lawyer to Defend Me?
Whenever you face charges that could result in a criminal record, you should hire an experienced defense attorney. Possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana is a felony in Florida. Depending on the quantity of marijuana and other factors, you could face more serious charges such as possession with intent to sell, drug sales and delivery, or drug trafficking.
Possession of 20 or fewer grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor in Florida. However, even a misdemeanor conviction is not a good thing to have on your record. You would be required to disclose that record every time you apply for a job. If you are a student, it could result in loss of eligibility for student grants and loans.
There are many defenses for marijuana charges. Many times the charges hinge on search and seizure issues. If the seizure of drug evidence resulted from a vehicle stop, was the stop legal? Did police have a right to search your vehicle? As former prosecutors, we are highly experienced at identifying search and seizure issues that could result in the marijuana charges being dropped.
You may also be eligible for first-offender treatment that could resolve the charges without a conviction and in many cases result in charges being dropped or dismissed!
