Tampa, Florida Attorney Handling Cases Involving Methamphetamine or “Meth” The State of Florida classifies controlled substances such as crystal meth and methamphetamine under schedule II category. A third-degree felon, i.e., the convicted person may face incarceration for up to five years and a penalty of $5000 in fines. However, if the total weight of the product exceeds 14 grams, then the defendant will be charged with drug trafficking and could face a mandatory minimum sentence. If the narcotic is taken across state lines, then the accused may also face federal criminal charges.

These cases of methamphetamine usually commence with the accused apply for an appeal of ‘not guilty,’ and the judge will schedule a trial for a future date. It is possible when the judge has found a probable cause supporting the charges. However, cases involving meth often depend on facts, such as how the evidence was obtained. Does the law scrutinize whether the evidence taken into custody by the law enforcement agency violated the constitutional rights of the defendant or not? If the agencies are found guilty of such violation, the defense lawyer will file a motion to suppress the evidence. If a dismissal or negotiation is not obtained, then the case will be taken to trial. A jury will decide the issue of guilt or innocence. These matters can involve complicated constitutional and evidentiary issues. It is important to retain experienced counsel.
