Methamphetamine (also known as Crystal Meth, ice, crank, speed, tina, or glass) is a controlled substance in Florida and its possession is commonly prosecuted by the State. If you are charged with simple possession of Methamphetamine, it is a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine along with loss of driving privileges for 2 years. If charged with possession of larger quantities of crystal meth or depending on the facts of your case, you may be charged with more serious drug crimes such as: trafficking, possession with intent, or manufacturing methamphetamine.
You can even be charged for having tools used to make or use methamphetamine. These include spoons, scales, and certain chemicals. The charge for possession of such tools is a drug paraphernalia charge, which is a first-degree misdemeanor. A conviction for drug paraphernalia carries a maximum $1,000 fine and a year in jail, along with a 2 year license suspension. For help with your charges, contact an experienced drug paraphernalia attorney at Brown & Rice, P.A.
Being charged with possessing over 14 grams can also lead to a trafficking charge. Trafficking is based on the weight of drug, not whether it was being transported anywhere. The weight of the meth you are charged with has an effect on the potential penalty involved. There are mandatory minimum prison sentences and fines if convicted, so it is important to contact an experienced Orlando Methamphetamine Trafficking Attorney today at (407) 956-2172.
• Over 14 grams but under 28 grams: 3 year mandatory minimum sentence with a $50,000 fine.
• Over 28 grams but under 200 grams: 7 year mandatory minimum sentence with a $100,000 fine.
• Over 200 grams: 15 year mandatory minimum sentence with a $250,000 fine.
