Types of Drug Crimes & Associated Penalties

Florida law includes many different types of drug crimes, and each one can carry significant penalties. Drug crimes can either be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the severity of the crime, the amount of controlled substance involved, prior convictions, and other factors.

Drug crimes can include:

  • Possession of marijuana, controlled substances, or drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of marijuana or controlled substances with the intent to sell
  • Trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or other narcotics
  • Prescription medication fraud or forgery
  • Cultivation of marijuana

Conviction for drug crimes can result in a wide range of penalties. Juveniles who have been charged with any drug crime will not only risk having a permanent criminal record but can also have difficulty obtaining government student aid, scholarships, loans or grants, and can often experience difficulties advancing in their personal and professional lives.

Don't risk conviction. Speak with Steven G. Casanova, P.A. today!

If you have been arrested for a drug crime, do not assume that you have no hope in avoiding a conviction. No matter how serious the evidence against you may seem, you do not have to plead guilty. With the right representation on your side, it is possible to successfully challenge evidence against you in a case involving drugs.

Retain us to protect your freedom and future against the serious penalties that you are facing! Call our Brevard County drug crime attorney to learn how we can protect you after an arrest. Se habla español.

    “Mr. Casanova was very kind and explained all the options available to me & specific to my case.”
    I would highly recommend Mr. Casanova to anyone seeking legal counsel. Mr. Casanova was very kind and explained all the options available to me & specific to my case. Not only is he (in my opinion) the best criminal lawyer in all of Brevard county...he is also the most fairly priced. I am thankful for his help & the time he spent with me free of charge. Unfortunately I could not hire him due to conflict of interest...however he was very helpful in recommending the lawyer I did hire. I can't speak highly enough of Mr. Casanova!!

    “Top Notch Defense”
    I am a native Central Floridian and I value the laws of our state. I found myself in a jam at the beach and I needed the best. I read the reviews and I made a choice to hire the best local attorney with the right knowledge and associations. I knew I had made the right choice when I saw Mr. Casanova’s curriculum vitae. During the entire process I felt blessed to have his representation and all contact was to-the-point and professional. Steve and his girls Karen and Katie resolved my case with ease. Now my freedom is in sight. Good job to the entire team their for top notch defense!

    “Best Possible Outcome!”
    I recently referred a client to attorney Steven Casanova and I could not be happier with the result he obtained. Mr. Casanova's knowledge of criminal law and procedure, his years of experience in the courtroom, his great communication skills, the respect he has among his peers, his quick and timely responses to questions and concerns, and his true compassion for his clients makes him an extremely effective lawyer. Using these traits and his ability to strategize and negotiate, he recently and quickly achieved the best possible result for my client who I referred to him for criminal defense in a felony case. Way to go Steve! We all are extremely grateful.
