If you or a loved one have been arrested in the Orlando area for possessing methamphetamine in violation of Florida Statute 893.13(6)(A), the attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel are available to fight the case for you!
Possession of methamphetamine is a third degree felony punishable by a $5000 fine and up to five years in a Florida prison. Methamphetamine is usually charged under the “simple possession” statute if the person has less than 10 grams of product on his or her person when arrested. If you are convicted, not only will you be a convicted felon, but you will lose your driving privilege for a two year period. You will also be forced to undergo a substance abuse evaluation and any recommended treatment.
At the law offices of Finebloom & Haenel, we can help you explore your options and defenses. Some areas we explore are:
- The reason for your arrest
- Was there a reason for the stop?
- Is there a reason to suppress your confession or the search?
- The quantity of drug
- Legal defenses such as “constructive possession.”
- Your criminal history
- Is this a first offense that qualifies you for a diversion program?
- Is your scoresheet accurate?
At Finebloom & Haenel our practice is dedicated to criminal defense. The attorneys and support staff work hard to obtain the best result possible for your situation. While we are sympathetic and understanding to your situation, we aggressively fight for your rights against the State. Don’t delay.
