Drug Trafficking Defense

The laws regarding "drug trafficking" in the state of Florida come with harsh penalties. One of the most common drugs involved in trafficking is cocaine. Because it is considered a controlled substance, this means that there is a high potential for abuse that can lead to severe psychological or physical dependence. Unlike some other drugs which can be labeled for medical use, being caught with cocaine will land you with a hefty punishment. 

Lengthy Investigation Leads To Major Drug Trafficking Bust

Orlando MBI (Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation) have charged 18 people for drug trafficking. This all came about after a lengthy investigation was conducted by the bureau. Officials say four of the suspects have been looked at closely for several months, possibly as early since November of 2013. Central Florida law enforcement agencies worked together for this investigation and successful bust inside Orange County. They have singled out the ring leader of the suspected drug trafficking organization. The suspect has been arrested on felony charges 27 times and four times for misdemeanor crimes. Authorities say many of the suspects charged have violent criminal histories. The "kingpin" is facing 10 charges related to drug trafficking alone, as well as the illegal possession of a firearm.

Driver license suspension for Drug Charges

In Florida someone convicted of a drug charge can lose their license for a period of 2 years through the court and or DMHSV.   This is viewed as an harsh consequence by many in the legal justice system. The DHSMV can suspend your license even if the Judge does not order it as a part of a sentence.  

Florida Doctor Arrested for Pain-Pill Trafficking

In July of this year, Florida police arrested Dr. Ataur Rahman and four others after a year-and-a-half long investigation into a suspected narcotics smuggling ring. Authorities allege that Rahman and his co-conspirators, all of whom were Rahman's patients or employees, were distributing prescription drugs such as Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Methadone and Alprazolam illegally throughout Florida and outside the state.
