Presenting A Tough Defense Against Meth Distribution And Possession Charges In Florida
Due to the addictive nature of meth and the dangerous way in which it is produced, there are extremely serious punishments for possessing or distributing this drug. If you or someone you love faces meth possession charges, you need to enlist the services of a dedicated, skilled criminal defense lawyer.
At O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, we defend people facing all levels of meth charges in both state and federal courts across Florida. We understand the difficult nature of these charges and will fight to protect your rights throughout the length of your case.
Methamphetamine Possession Charges Are Very Serious
In Florida, if you are accused of possessing less than 14 grams of methamphetamine, you will be charged with possession. Possession of methamphetamine is a third-degree felony. Although possession of meth does not bring on a mandatory minimum prison sentence, this charge is still punishable by up to five years in state prison. Our law firm will review the evidence and find every potential strategy to vindicate you. We will examine whether you possessed the drugs or whether there is reason to believe the police violated your rights.
If the evidence appears to be strong, we will look for ways to mitigate the damage of a conviction. In some situations, Drug Court may be an option. If you successfully complete Drug Court, your charges will be dismissed. Our Tampa methamphetamine possession attorneys are both former prosecutors, and have the experience and tenacity to help you achieve a positive result in your case.
