Intent to Sell, Sale of Narcotics, or Drug Trafficking

 

 

Central Florida Criminal Defense.  Criminal defense in Orlando, and surrounding areas. During the mid-2000's Florida was experiencing a very serious "pill-mill" problem.  A select few doctors were over-prescribing prescription drug medication and these pills were entering the black market economy.  Florida lawmakers were eager to address the issue, thus a series of very harsh laws were passed in response to drug dealing of any kind.  Many people would be shocked to learn that an 18 year old kid simply selling off their parents oxycodone prescription as a first-time offender could be found guilty of a felony offense of the 1st degree and would be sentencing to a MINIMUM OF AT LEAST 25 YEARS IN STATE PRISON.  This was clearly not the intention of the legislature when they were attempting to combat the pill-mill problem.  However, this is the reality for many youthful offenders. 

 

People are now serving significantly longer terms for drug dealing crimes than the sentences given to violent felony offenders.  An intent to sell, drug dealing, or trafficking offense is a terrifyingly serious offense with potentially disastrous consequences, and no person should attempt to resolve their case without first consulting with an attorney.  If you have been arrested for a drug offense such as this in Orlando, Orange County, Osceola County, Seminole County, Volusia County, or Brevard County Florida, contact the ByrdLaw Firm immediately for a free consultation.
