Get Strong Help For Fentanyl-Related Criminal Charges
Fentanyl abuse is one of the fastest-spreading problems in Florida. The addictive nature of fentanyl and related opioids leaves its users with a high likelihood of developing chemical dependency. Unfortunately, the justice system is not always sympathetic to individuals who commit fentanyl-related crimes – even when these crimes stem from addiction.
The attorneys at The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates understand this firsthand, having defended thousands of clients from serious drug offenses. Serving Orlando and the surrounding metro area, they have a proven record of positive results, from dismissed charges to acquittals. When it comes to fentanyl charges, they have what it takes to protect your rights aggressively.
What Are The Sentences For A Conviction?
The penalties for a fentanyl-related conviction can have a much greater impact on your life than you might think. The consequences for possession, for instance, may include:
- Up to five years in prison
- Up to five years of probation
- A fine of up to $5,000
- Suspension or revocation of your driver’s license
The severe effects on your life mean that it is critical to work with a skilled legal team. The lawyers of The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates have worked with clients in state and federal courts throughout Florida to shield them from the impacts of drug offenses. They can help you get a second chance.
The Deadly Serious Consequences Of Fentanyl Distribution
The distribution of fentanyl can lead to even more serious penalties. If someone dies from an overdose of fentanyl that you allegedly dealt out to them, you may face criminal charges. Some defendants have even faced homicide charges for dealing with drugs that led to an overdose death. This threat is far too big to leave to fate or to handle on your own.
