Possessing More Than 20 Grams Of Marijuana Is Quite Serious
Florida is cracking down on people, including students attending the University of Central Florida (UCF), who are in possession of marijuana. The amount of marijuana will determine the penalties you will face if convicted. It is vital that you seek help from an attorney as soon as possible to minimize the penalties.
Orlando attorney Corey I. Cohen and his team have the experience it takes for your best chance of success in drug possession charges. As a former prosecutor and public defender in Florida, Mr. Cohen knows how the prosecution works, which gives him knowledgeable insights into how to defend your rights against any drug charge.
He has helped hundreds of first-time offenders obtain probation or a reduction in the charges through negotiation and alternative sentencing measures such as alcohol or drug counseling and community service. He leads a team of knowledgeable trial attorneys who are ready to take on your defense.
The Penalties You Can Expect
If the amount of marijuana in question is less than 20 grams, you will be charged with a misdemeanor, which carries with it up to one year in jail, one year of probation or $1,000 in fines. If the marijuana is 20 grams or greater, however, it can result in a felony charge of possession of cannabis.
If you have been charged with possession of cannabis greater than 20 grams, the consequences can be devastating and may result in prison time, felony probation, loss of your driving privileges for two years and the stigma of being a convicted felon for the rest of your life.
