Heroin charges and your rights in Orlando

As a part of the growing opioid crisis in the United States, arrests and charges for heroin possession are increasing as law enforcement steps up efforts to combat the problem. This means if you are a heroin user, your chances of being caught and charged with possession are likely much greater now than in the past.

Defining drug possession with intent to sell

Over 1 million people face arrest every year as a result of a drug law violation. In 2016, the FBI arrested over 1.5 million people for an array of charges, including possession of a controlled substance and sale or manufacturing of a drug. However, there is another charge many Floridians have faced: possession with intent to sell

Why the amount of drugs matters

When police officers say that they found drugs in someone’s possession, they use the amount to determine intent. In other words, someone who had enough only for personal use likely would not face charges with intent to distribute. On the other hand, someone who had a huge amount of the drug could face charges with intent to distribute.

What is a Nebbia Hold?

A question many clients have for me is what is a Nebbia hold? While the most common cases with Nebbia hold's are drug crimes there are other crimes that can get one as well.  A Nebbia hold is a detainer or a hold put on by a Judge typically at initial appearances for drug crimes. What is means is that before you are able to bond out of jail the clerk or the Judge needs proof that the funds that are being used to post the bond are coming from a non-nefarious source. What does this mean?

Need to know about Drug Paraphernalia arrests

Being caught with "drug paraphernalia" even without the drugs is serious charge in the state of Florida. Any type drug paraphernalia possession is a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum sentence of one year imprisonment and a maximum fine of $1,000. The state defines any product, equipment, or device used to make illegal drugs as "paraphernalia".

Drug Arrests At Music Festival

Starting this Friday the 7th of November, Orlando will be hosting a two day - two night music festival called the Electric Daisy Carnival. While an event such as this is supposed to be about enjoying the festivities, it is also a perfect time for the police to crack down on drug users and dealers.

What to do after a Drug Bust

Police drug busts are becoming more and more elaborate. As alleged users and dealers get smarter, so do the cops. Gone are the days of suspects being busted only for marijuana or cocaine. Now being caught with illegal pharmaceuticals, or running a potential meth house, has law enforcement's attention.

Possession of Cocaine

The United States of America has extremely strict laws when it comes to drug possession and not many states are stricter than Florida. While marijuana is becoming more and more acceptable, the punishment for being in possession of cocaine is as harsh as ever. It doesn't matter how much you are in possession of, even if it is just some cocaine residue in a bag or on your hands, it is a Third Degree Felony in FL.
