Drug Crimes

If you have been arrested for a drug crime you are probably very concerned about the impact this could have on your life now and in the future. The Florida criminal justice system is relentless in its own war on drugs and zealous prosecutors will do everything in their power to get a conviction. Zachary E. Stoumbos, P.A. is dedicated to protecting clients from the harsh punishment associated with a drug crime conviction. Florida State and Federal laws are quite strict when it comes to drug crimes and drug trafficking. A drug crime is considered to be any criminal act involving the possession, use or sale of illegal substances. Illegal drugs include:




  • Marijuana
  • Crack
  • PCP
  • Ecstasy
  • Cocaine
  • LSD
  • Heroin
  • Opiate
  • Illegally used prescription drugs

Depending on past convictions and the circumstances surrounding the current charges, drug offenses can result in severe consequences if convicted. These can include probation, prison time, property forfeiture and a court-ordered drug treatment program. When there are prior convictions even a small amount of a controlled substance can lead to large fines and jail sentences

Under the federal sentencing guidelines, a drug trafficking offense is defined as “an offense under federal, state, or local law that prohibits the manufacture, import, export, distribution, or dispensing of a controlled substance (or a counterfeit substance) or the possession of a controlled substance (or a counterfeit substance) with intent to manufacture, import, export, distribute, or dispense.” U.S.S.G. § 2L1.2(b)(1), Drug trafficking is one of the more serious drug crimes, especially if the trafficking involves crossing state lines. This type of drug crime can involve investigation by the FBI and the DEA, increasing your risk of even harsher penalties, forfeiture of property and imprisonment.

The stakes are high when it comes to drug charges so you should make sure that you have a knowledgeable and dedicated drug possession lawyer representing you. Don’t let drug charges ruin your personal and professional life or negatively impact your future.
