Common Drug Crimes in Panama City

According to a report from the Florida Office of Drug Control, cocaine is the number one drug threat statewide, with trafficking operations across state borders and via maritime transportation being widespread. Marijuana is listed as being the most commonly abused drug, which involves offenses ranging from misdemeanor possession to felony sales. Whether you are charged on the state level or if you are under investigation for a federal crime, an attorney from our firm may be able to have the case dismissed by demonstrating that your Constitutional rights were violated during the investigation by a search without a warrant, our could be able to negotiate a favorable plea bargain such as participation in a drug court alternative sentencing program. It might even be possible to secure a full acquittal, but you must take action now by retaining legal representation.

What are the penalties for a drug crime in Panama City?

Depending on the specific type of offense in your case, you could be facing time in jail or prison. For example, an arrest for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana is punishable as a misdemeanor with a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, while if you were caught with more than this amount you could be sent to prison for up to 15 years and fined $10,000 for a felony conviction. Federal drug crimes such as trafficking generally carry even tougher penalties, such as a maximum of 40 years in prison and a $5 million fine for trafficking up to 4,999 grams of cocaine. Even a relatively light sentence would also leave you with a criminal record which could interfere with your future career opportunities.
