If you have been charged with trafficking in marijuana under Florida Statute 893.135(1)(a) the attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel are here to help you. Our experienced attorneys can craft a custom defense plan to fit your particular needs and help you fight your case.
Trafficking is controlled by the weight of the drug you possess. Not by your intent! This means if you buy a large quantity of certain drugs for personal use, the government can still charge you with trafficking! THERE IS NO GAIN TIME OR GOOD TIME FOR A TRAFFICKING CHARGE! The minimum mandatory sentence is day for day.
- Under Florida Statute 893.135(1)(a) if you are convicted of having between 25 pounds and 2,000 pounds of marijuana, or if you are convicted of having between 300 and 2,000 plants, it is a mandatory 3 year prison sentence and $25,000 fine.
- If you are convicted of having between 2,000 pounds and 10,000 pounds of marijuana or between 2,000 and 10,000 marijuana plants, it is a mandatory 7 year prison sentence and a $50,000 fine.
- If you are convicted of having more than 10,000 pounds of marijuana or more than 10,000 plants, you must serve at least 15 years in prison and pay a $200,000 fine.
In addition, you may also be subject to federal charges, property forfeiture and license suspension.
