Kissimmee Drug Crime Attorneys

Drug offenses can incur severe punishments

While there are various types of drug charges with varying conviction penalties, all drug crimes are typically prosecuted in an aggressive manner by the district attorney’s office or by federal prosecutors, depending upon the specifics of the case. If you are arrested and charged with drug possession, drug trafficking or another drug crime, you have been caught in the crosshairs of the federal government’s political war on drugs.

Drug crime sentences depend on several factors

Drug crimes involve illegal drugs, illegally obtained prescription drugs and certain other chemicals. The degree of crime with which you are charged typically depends upon:

  • The type of drug Controlled substances are broken down into different categories based on their perceived severity. Illegally obtained prescription drugs, alcohol and marijuana are all categorized differently than substances such as cocaine or heroin.
  • The amount of the drug Both federal and state courts charge defendants based on the weight of the substance seized.
  • The perceived use of the drugs Courts consider whether a defendant intended to distribute the substance to others or whether they were meant for personal use.
  • Your prior criminal record — Prior convictions, especially for drug offenses, can play a major role in how the government decides to charge you and what sentence you may incur.
