Defense of Drug Crimes involving Cocaine and Crack
Both powder and crack cocaine is a top priority for law enforcement and prosecutors. In Florida, law enforcement and judges are trying to crack down hard on those caught manufacturing, distributing or trafficking in cocaine. Even a small amount of cocaine can result in a prison sentence if you don’t have an experienced Florida criminal defense attorney.
Under State law, Possession of only 28 grams or more of cocaine is considered trafficking. People convicted of this crime face a mandatory minimum prison sentence of three years and a maximum of thirty years. Possession of 200 grams or more carries a minimum sentence of seven years and 400 grams or more carries a minimum 15 year sentence.
Under Federal Law, the penalties are tougher for crack cocaine than for powder cocaine. Just 50 grams of crack cocaine is punishable by a minimum of ten years in prison and a maximum of life in prison. Just 5 grams of crack carries a minimum sentence of five years in Federal Prison.
The Orlando Law Office of Travis Williams will be aggressive and dedicated in helping you avoid these harsh penalties. We use a thorough and detailed approach to successfully defend your case. We will investigate and research whether the police violated your Constitutional Rights when they stopped you, searched you or gathered evidence against you. If your rights were violated, then we will immediately file a Motion to have your charges dismissed. Even if your rights were not violated, we will look at every angle and every defense available to defend you.
If negotiating a plea deal is the best way to resolve your case, then we will use the best approach with the Government to try to get them to reduce your charge and sentence below the minimum penalties. As a former prosecutor in Florida, attorney Travis Williams is familiar with the Government’s approach in prosecuting their cases.
We also realize that some of our clients have a drug addiction and we can assist you in getting treatment. Any positive steps someone takes on getting their life back in order helps us negotiate with the Government.
