Board-Certified Criminal Defense Representation In Central Florida

The many ways a drug charge can punish you

by | Dec 17, 2016 | Drug Possession |

At Lindsey & Ferry, P.A., we take pride in representing a wide range of people who have been accused of a wide range of drug charges. We will advocate on behalf of our clients and work hard to present the best case possible. We also work closely with our clients to ensure that their questions are answered and they feel secure in the direction their case is going. Drug charges are very serious, and we respect that at Lindsey & Ferry and do as much as we possibly can for our clients.

Drug charges often have consequences and penalties that don’t necessarily match up with the supposed severity of the crime. For example, simply possessing drugs in the state of Florida can lead to many years in jail, the loss of your driver’s license for one year, thousands of dollars in fines, and an extensive period of probation even after you have spent time in jail.

And we haven’t even talked about some of the other consequences that someone can suffer after they have paid back their debt to society. Their criminal history will haunt them, making it difficult to find a job or a new place to live; they will be limited in their ability to get around, due to the license suspension; and they will have many probationary responsibilities to uphold.

This is why it is so critical to defend yourself and your rights in the wake of a drug charge. The stakes are too high to accept the charges at hand.
