DRUG OFFENSE ATTORNEY IN KISSIMMEE
You have just been arrested for possession, distribution and/or trafficking of drugs. Or maybe you have gotten a call from a family member who has been arrested. What should you do? Exercise your Miranda rights to remain silent until you have legal counsel with experience in drug offenses.
The drug laws are written in Chapter 893 of the Florida Statutes, with their potential penalties. These illegal substances include marijuana, cocaine, heroine, methadone, methamphetamine, xanax, oxycodone, designer drugs and possession of paraphernalia.
Drug charges are very serious and a conviction can result in heavy penalties. In the State of Florida, there are mandatory minimum sentencing laws for drug trafficking. Many times, those experimenting and arrested with drugs are first time offenders and this one event can alter the course of a lifetime. If you are a repeat offender, you want to have the best legal representation available.
How can the Rudy Ramjeawan Law Group help? We will work closely with you and support you throughout your arrest, arraignment, negotiations and trial. Our legal team will formulate an effective defense strategy for the most beneficial outcome.
There are questions we may ask during our investigation to produce an effective defense. These questions may lead to a dismissal or reduction of charges.
- Did the Police Officer have a legitimate reason for a search of a person or vehicle? An illegal search and seizure defense can be effective. The US Constitution’s Fourth Amendment prohibits unlawful search and seizures. You are under no obligation to agree to have a Police Officer search your car or your person. They must have probable cause to do so, without your consent.
- Did the defendant know the drugs were in his possession? Perhaps you borrowed an article of clothing and were not aware you were in possession of drugs. Perhaps someone left illegal drugs in your apartment, unbeknownst to you.
- Was the defendant being treated for an overdose of drugs? This could give him a defense of immunity. Florida Statute states that a person who experiences a drug related overdose and is in need of medical assistance may not be charged, prosecuted or penalized for the possession of the controlled substance.
- Can you obtain a legal prescription for the drugs?
- Did you have only temporary possession of the drug, that is, did someone hand you the drug when the Police came on the scene?
- Does the defendant have an alibi that he was not present during the commission of the crime?
- Were you coerced into a drug buy by an overzealous Law Enforcement Official?
- Did the crime lab do a proper analysis of the drug and were any mistakes made?
