Orlando Ecstasy Possession Charges Defense Attorneys
Ecstasy or Molly are two of the street names for MDMA or 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine. While MDMA became illegal in the United States in 1984 it has continued to be used recreationally.
Moses and Rooth Attorneys at Law represents clients in Orlando and throughout Florida who stand accused of possessing, selling or trafficking in MDMA/Molly. Our attorneys do not allow prosecutors to trample the rights of the accused. By engaging in thorough investigations, we are able to advise clients of the likely outcomes and take steps toward building solid defenses. We do not encourage guilty pleas unless it is in their best interests, a decision that is only made after exhaustive efforts to find a viable defense.
Florida Law Punishes Ecstasy-Related Crimes Harshly
Possession of MDMA is a third degree felony which is punishable by up to 5 years in the Department of Corrections or 5 years of probation. Additionally, there can be up to a $5,000 fine. It is also important to understand that if convicted of possession of MDMA your driver’s license will be suspended for two years.
Under Florida law, the sale, possession, or manufacture of 10 grams or more of MDMA/Ecstasy will be charged as a first-degree felony. 10 grams is a small amount, and a first-degree felony is extremely serious, which is why it is so important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible if you are accused of any offense related to this drug.
The sentences for a conviction are very harsh, and depend on the amount of Ecstasy involved:
- 10 grams or more but less than 200 grams: Mandatory minimum prison term of three years plus a $50,000 fine
- 200 grams or more but less than 400 grams: Mandatory minimum prison term of seven years plus a fine of $100,000
- 400 grams or more: Mandatory minimum prison terms of 15 years plus a fine of $250,000
