Drug Trafficking in West Palm Beach
Are you under suspicion for drug trafficking?
Drug trafficking charges in Florida are first degree felonies that are aggressively prosecuted and carry with them harsh penalties, including loss of freedom and other devastating effects. If you are under suspicion for drug trafficking or have already been charged, it is vital that you seek competent legal counsel immediately and do not attempt to face off against the prosecution on your own.
I am Phil Ridolfo, Jr., a West Palm Beach criminal defense attorney at The Law Offices of Phillip T. Ridolfo, Jr. and I am eager to stand at your side during this difficult time. Do not delay; contact me for a free initial consultation and I will carefully weigh the key aspects of your case and determine if I can help protect your rights and your freedom.
Florida Statutes state that any person who knowingly sells, purchases, manufactures, delivers or brings into the state, or who is knowingly in possession of a controlled substance, is engaged in drug trafficking. These charges carry with them much harsher sentences than simple drug possession, and penalties can range from 3 years in prison and a $25,000 fine to 25 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. You can be assured that my firm will challenge the prosecution to prove each and every part of the charges against you.
A few examples of challenges that can be brought include:
- Whether the drugs were yours, or
- If you were knowingly involved in the trafficking aspect
- Search and seizure violations under the 4th Amendment
