Maitland Drug Distribution Defense Lawyer
The term "trafficking" may bring to mind the large-scale movement of illegal drugs across international borders. In fact, drug trafficking is almost synonymous with drug dealing and drug distribution. The difference is in the quantity of drugs the accused is charged with possessing. Often, individuals charged with cocaine trafficking simply have a serious problem with cocaine addiction.
Legal Penalties for a Cocaine Trafficking Charge
The Florida Legislature has created minimum mandatory sentencing for cocaine trafficking offenses:
- Possession of 28 grams of cocaine or more but less than 200 grams; three-year minimum mandatory sentence and a $50,000 fine
- Possession of 200 grams of cocaine or more but less than 400 grams; seven-year minimum mandatory sentence and a $100,000 fine
- Possession of 400 grams of cocaine or more but less than 150 kilos; 15-year minimum mandatory sentence and a $250,000 fine
- Possession of more than 150 kilos; life imprisonment

Was the vehicle stop legal? How were phone calls intercepted? Were wiretaps obtained lawfully? Was a search warrant obtained prior to the search of a home or storage site? Are you the victim of entrapment? Has law enforcement discussed opportunities for substantial assistance? Our track record for having charges reduced or dismissed in drug crime cases includes hundreds of successes.
