Bradenton Marijuana Attorney

Drug possession charges in Florida come with heavy potential penalties, including fines and imprisonment. Possession of or selling 20 grams or less of marijuana could actually result in a prison term of up to one year on top of a fine of $1,000. You face similar penalties when charged with possession of paraphernalia such as pipes, weight scales or even plastic baggies.

For hash, the same penalties apply to less than three grams. Those are the only misdemeanor charges for possession, sale and distribution under Florida marijuana law.

An Experienced Attorney Can Help You Avoid The Worst Consequences

  • All amounts greater than 20 grams of weed or three grams of hash result in felony charges, five to 30 years in prison and $5,000 to $200,000 maximum penalties.
  • Mandatory minimum sentences of three years or more come into play if you are charged with possession or intent to sell more than 25 pounds of marijuana (drug trafficking).
  • Many people do not know that any marijuana conviction will also include a driver's license suspension. Your license could be suspended for two years upon conviction.

Fight Marijuana Charges | Don't Get Bullied

Before becoming a criminal defense attorney, I was a state prosecutor in the Sarasota-Bradenton state attorney's office. I know how the system works, and I know how to counter the legal strategies of the prosecution. The defense strategy that I develop for your case will be unique to your particular situation, and I will dedicate myself to achieving the best possible outcome available in your case.

I am Bradenton marijuana defense lawyer D. Scott Rieth, and I can take immediate action to intervene in the case on your behalf. Police officers may mislead you. They may try to pin more charges against you than they have evidence for. Performing illegal searches and seizures of cars, homes and other property is common. I will personally investigate each matter in constant communication with the prosecution on your behalf. I won't let your case become just another figure in the drug crime statistics. I will fight for your rights and your freedom.
