Possession of More Than 20 Grams of Marijuana
The state of Florida aggressively prosecutes individuals who have been arrested for possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana. While possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor charge, possession of more than 20 grams is a felony offense. If convicted, you could face significant criminal and civil penalties, including incarceration in a state prison and suspension of your driver's license for up to two years.
If you have been charged with the possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, protect your rights by retaining a criminal defense attorney. You can find the experienced, skilled and dedicated representation you need at LaBar Adams. Located in Orlando, we defend clients throughout central Florida against marijuana possession charges and other drug offenses.
Get the Vigorous Representation You Deserve
At LaBar Adams, we understand that a criminal conviction of any kind can have a significant impact on you and your family. We understand that a felony conviction, in particular, can be devastating to your future employment opportunities as well as your freedom. Our mission is to secure the most favorable result possible in your case, with an emphasis on limiting the adverse consequences that can often result from serious criminal charges.
Since the prosecution may aggressively prosecute individuals charged with felony drug crimes, you will need a strong advocate in your corner. To provide the zealous defense you require, we take time to investigate the facts leading to your arrest and review the evidence in the prosecution's possession to determine how we can best fight your charges.
From the start of each case, we believe that we can make a positive difference for our clients. There are a variety of ways that we may positively impact your case if you are facing felony marijuana possession charges:
- We can fight your charges at trial and hold the prosecution to their burden of proof.
- We can utilize pretrial motions to seek the dismissal of charges or the suppression of evidence obtained in violation of your constitutional rights.
- We may be able to negotiate a plea agreement with the prosecution that allows you to avoid a criminal conviction, plead guilty to a lesser misdemeanor offense, which significantly reduces the penalties you receive or which minimizes the impact of your charges in other significant ways.
