Drug Charges in Tampa

A minor marijuana charge in Tampa can cause serious difficulties for you if convicted; your criminal record can affect your future employment and reputation. If you are arrested again in the future, you will be considered a “repeat offender” and may face more severe penalties. Any drug offense is dangerous and your actions immediately after the arrest are crucial.

Drug crime is an umbrella term that can refer to a number of moderate and serious offenses. In Florida, drug crimes include:

Frequently Asked Questions: Drug Crimes

After an arrest, many are confused about the best course of action. How to proceed? Should I plead guilty and take the punishment? Knowing how to address serious drug charges is vital if you hope to avoid the serious punishments you will face under Florida law. Never proceed into criminal court without an aggressive defense lawyer who is dedicated to fighting on your behalf. Contact our Tampa criminal defense lawyer at Taracks & Associates if you have further questions about your charges, penalties, or defense options!

Should I Plead Guilty?

When facing a drug offense, even a marijuana possession offense, it is vital that you have legal counsel that will advise you about all matters, including your plea. Many individuals have made a "guilty" plea when their case had serious flaws in police procedure. Had they had a skilled attorney, it may have been dismissed. Never proceed into court without obtaining legal counsel.

How Do I Choose an Attorney?

Not all attorneys are equal in ability. Yes they have the knowledge of the law. The question is - can they aggressively defend a case, and do they have the extensive experience that is vital in defending drug offenses? Our legal team has over 30 years of experience, and we are a former state prosecutor with long term trial experience. We fight, and we fight hard.

Will I Go to Jail for Growing Marijuana for My Own Use?

The laws regarding penalties for cultivation are based on the amount that is found in your possession. If you are found to have 300 or more marijuana plants, you will be facing a first degree felony offense. A conviction can result in 3 years in state prison and a fine of $25,000. Law enforcement will collect the evidence and try to prove that you grew over the threshold amount of 300 plants. It is vital that you contact our office at once if you are accused of this crime. A felony conviction will restrict you in the future in almost every area of your life.

How Do I Avoid Conviction on a Prescription Drug Charge?

The huge increase in the use of prescription drugs has lead state lawmakers to impose severe penalties on those who use these drugs illegally, or sell them on the street. The charge will most likely be a felony, and the penalties will include years in state prison. Acting quickly to find the best option to defend the case is vital, as a conviction is a very serious matter. Our legal team can seek out the best defense possibilities to employ in your case.

Former Tampa Prosecutor Now Fighting for You

Knowing both sides allows the attorney fighting for you to operate within the system capably and make the right moves. The first step is to thoroughly analyze every aspect of the evidence that has been obtained against you. There are an astonishing number of errors in police procedure, including failure to have "probable cause" in the police stop, or overstepping the bounds in searching you or your premises without a warrant.

It is vital that you have a dedicated attorney fighting every aspect of the prosecutor’s case against you, and our legal team is prepared to aggressively challenge any point of evidence that is flawed or was illegally gained. Contacting our Tampa defense firm and getting legal counsel to protect your rights can significantly increase the possibility of a favorable outcome in your case, whether a dismissed charge, reduced charge, not guilty verdict or alternative sentencing. It is vital that you do not answer any questions until your attorney arrives to ensure your rights are protected.
