Drug Crimes

West Palm Beach Drug Crime Lawyers

Prosecutors often seek tough sentences on drug crimes because drug crimes and drug use are often associated with the beginnings of violent crime. Moreover, possession of certain illegal drugs of a certain weight is considered trafficking in that drug, and that means mandatory minimum sentences ranging from three (3) years to twenty-five (25) years in prison.

At Prestia Holtz P.A, we have years of experience in handling drug cases, including many successes in jury trials involving drug charges. Using the wealth of our experience, both as criminal defense lawyers as well as former prosecutors, we can provide you with the legal guidance you need through any type of drug crime case. Some of the most common charges that our firm can help you fight include:

Drug Sale/Distribution/Trafficking: In the state of Florida,your actual intent in possessing a certain amount of drugs may not matter with respect to the charges you face. Most of the time, the charges you face solely depend on the amount of a drug you posses. For example, if you possess over a certain amount, you may be charged with possession with intent to sell or distribute even if you had no intention of selling or distributing the drugs. Possessing even larger amounts may result in you being charged with drug trafficking.

Drug Manufacturing: It is illegal in Florida to grow or manufacture illegal drugs. These cases typically involve the growing of marijuana, processing of powder cocaine into crack cocaine, and the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Drug Possession: Even possession of small amount of an illegal or controlled substance (such as having prescription drugs without a prescription) can bring felony charges, which could result in prison time depending on the circumstances.
