Were you charged with possession of marijuana in the Tampa Bay area? In Florida, possession of marijuana (under 20 grams) is a misdemeanor criminal offense that carries serious penalties. While you likely will not face jail time for a first offense, you will be subject to an automatic one year driver’s license suspension if you plea guilty or no contest or if you are found guilty at trial. Because of this automatic license suspension, it is important that you fully understand – and fight – the charges against you.
At Taracks & Associates we have three former prosecutors on staff who know the law and how the State will build a case against you. Our staff will look for holes in your case that will lead to the case being dismissed or reduced. Our goal is to help you avoid a conviction and automatic license suspension.
