Why Hire Our Firm

Minimum Mandatory Sentence

A conviction of a misdemeanor drug arrest in South Florida carries a jail sentence of up to one year and a $1,000 fine. A conviction of the most minor misdemeanor can impact your life severely - not just from the jail time and fine, but future employment opportunities, too. If convicted, you also can be denied rental housing from an arrest. A conviction also will result in suspension of your driver's license. Many felony drug charges, such as trafficking, have severe minimum mandatory sentencing, such as 3 to 25 years. Florida law also requires a 3-year minimum mandatory sentence for the sale of certain drugs within 1,000 feet of a school, park, or child care facility.

You may also risk losing the ability to:

  • Adopt or foster a child
  • Receive a student loan
  • Vote
