Delivery of a controlled substance to a minor in the state of Florida is a first degree felony, punishable by up to 30 years in jail and $10,000 in fines. Delivery of drug paraphernalia to a minor in the state of Florida is a second degree felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. These are serious drug possession charges that the state aggressively pursues, often to both set precedent and strike fear into future drug dealers.
Understanding Your Rights
You are guaranteed certain rights under the United States Constitution. Law enforcement officers must follow a very strict protocol when making arrests for any crime. Often, in the heat of the moment, officers act rashly or without concern for your guaranteed rights. This can lead to a charge that is either grossly exaggerated, or entirely impossible to legally prove.
Our attorneys know exactly what to look for in these cases. We will build a strong defense on your behalf, and fight tirelessly to ensure you are treated fairly and that your rights are protected. We are devoted to helping people accused of these crimes have their side of the story heard, and will do everything possible to ensure your continued freedom.
