Defending Against Designer Drug Distribution And Possession Charges In Florida
Ecstasy, also referred to as MDMA, is a relatively common drug found throughout Florida and the United States. Ecstasy has earned a reputation as a “party drug,” but the criminal penalties associated with its use are no fun at all. There are no misdemeanor criminal charges associated with possession of Ecstasy. The mere possession of Ecstasy is a third-degree felony. Further, the possession of between 10 and 200 grams of Ecstasy is punishable by a mandatory minimum prison term of three years. Florida’s drug laws are very severe. If you have been charged under these laws, you need an attorney who will help you protect your rights.
At O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, our Tampa Ecstasy possession lawyers defend people throughout Florida facing serious drug allegations. Over our firm’s history, we have achieved numerous favorable outcomes for people facing extremely serious drug charges. Our attorneys have the skill and resources to take on the most serious, complex cases.
Providing Results-Driven Representation In Drug Cases
Our only priority in a case is to protect our clients’ rights and achieve a positive outcome. In most drug cases, prosecutors have significant discretion, and sometimes, significant leverage. We will find the weaknesses in the government’s case and use them to your benefit. For example, in some cases, the government may not be able to prove that the defendant actually “possessed” the drugs in question. Maybe the drugs were found in a questionable search.
Our law firm will use whatever facts or legal theories are at our disposal to persuade the prosecution to dismiss the charges or offer a more favorable plea. If it is necessary to argue your case before a judge and jury, we will be ready to make a strong case on your behalf.
