Much like other states, Florida takes a strong stance against drug crimes. Because certain drugs have became an epidemic in the nation, the penalties associated with these drug crimes can be rather harsh. Thus, those accused of committing such crimes will want to explore ways in which they can avoid these consequences and clear their name. Initiating a strong criminal defense is the first step in this process.
While defendants might feel helpless, facing a serious drug charge and seeing all the evidence collected against them, this should not deter an individual from asserting their right to defend him or herself against criminal accusations. When it comes to drug crimes, these are often the result of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, a misunderstanding when it comes to prescription drugs or even questionable evidence used to establish the intent to sell.
