Sarasota Drug Crime Defense Attorney
Repercussions of a Drug Distribution Charge
When it comes to drug related charges, law enforcement officers, prosecuting attorneys, and judges are never very lenient towards the accused. Drug crime laws are strictly enforced, therefore no matter what the circumstances of your arrest may be, if you have been caught with a quantity of a controlled substance that exceeds what could be considered for personal use, you will be charged with distribution of a controlled substance.
Drug distribution charges imply that an individual had drugs in his or her possession with the intent to distribute. Distribution does not only presuppose the intent to sell, but could involve manufacturing and distribution as well. An individual is usually charged with distribution if they are caught with a larger quantity of drugs than would warrant a possession charge, but not enough drugs to necessitate a drug trafficking charge. The severity of the punishments involved is in direct proportion to the quantity and type of drug associated with the charges.
If you stand accused of drug distribution, it is of the utmost importance to contact a Sarasota criminal attorney immediately.
