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!!

    "It's clear to me that he doesn't practice law for the prestige of doing so but for the satisfaction he gets by hearing how much he's made a positive impact in peoples lives."
    Mr. Casanova has been giving me solid counsel for 2 1/2 years. Each time I've spoken to him his feedback has always made a positive impact on my life. It's clear to me that one of his missions in life is to help those who need his advice. Most of us have a passion that provides us with satisfaction. It's clear to me that he doesn't practice law for the prestige of doing so but for the satisfaction he gets by hearing how much he's made a positive impact in peoples lives.

    "Couldn't ask for a more kind, understanding, and caring individual, and all this while still being very knowledgeable and effective and his job."
    I've been using Steve for nearly 15 years. At this stage in the game I would consider him more of a friend. Couldn't ask for a more kind, understanding, and caring individual, and all this while still being very knowledgeable and effective and his job. While specializing in criminal defense (ranging from misdemeanors and low level felonies, all the way up to major felony federal cases), Steve has throughout the years assisted me with other legal realms, such as civil and family law. Very fair pricing for the level of service. Would recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer!

    "Highly recommended!!!"
    Mr Casanova was available and engaged the first moment we called him. He has been dialed into our case from the moment we hired him, and went the extra miles to represent our loved one. The outcome was the best possible one, and I attribute this 100% to the work Mr Casanova put into our case. Throughout the process, he is always available to us to answer our questions. We cannot thank Mr Casanova enough. He truly is one of the best!!!

    "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.

    "5 stars would definitely recommend !"
    I hired Steve not once but twice. One of my favorite things about him is his energy in the court room and the rooms energy when he is in it, he has been working in Brevard for many years and has built a great relationship with “the other side”; the judges, state attorneys, so on and so forth.My other favorite thing was his ability to get me and my loved one out of a lot of trouble. Steve not only handled my fathers’ case perfectly, but my case as well. He was attentive, personable yet professional , truly a pleasure to work with and If I ever need assistance again , I’m going to Casanova!
