Punta Gorda Possession Lawyer

Criminal Defense in Punta Gorda, FL

Charges of any kind of drug crime could result in harsh penalties upon conviction. One of the most common drug offenses committed today is possession, which involves both simple possession and possession with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver a controlled substance. According to Florida state law, § 893.13, Fla. Stat. (2012), possession of a controlled substance can be either a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the substance in question.

Drugs such as heroin or methamphetamine will result in a second degree felony conviction, the penalty for which is a prison sentence of up to 15 years and a fine of up to $10,000. Other substances such as marijuana and steroids will incur a third degree felony conviction, with a prison sentence of up to five years and up to a $5,000 fine. Less dangerous substances will result in a first degree misdemeanor conviction, imprisonment for up to one year, and a fine of up to $1,000.
