In the state of Florida, simply possessing a large amount of drugs can get you charged with drug trafficking. Possession laws are less extreme than drug trafficking laws and, depending on the amount of drugs found in your possession, may be a more attractive prosecution for the District Attorney.
Drug trafficking can carry anywhere from three to 25 years in a state penitentiary along with fines ranging from $25,000 to $500,000. If you are accused of this serious crime, it is imperative that you hire one of the aggressive criminal defense attorneys at the Cochran Firm South Florida to help ensure your rights and freedoms are protected.
