"You Are Innocent Until Proven Guilty"
Gainesville Heroin Defense Attorney
Heroin Cases in Gainesville
Based on recent studies, heroin has been ranked as the number one most dangerous drug because of its addictive potential, physical harm to the user and on its impact upon society. The Florida legal system recognizes these dangers, and is tough on prosecuting drug crimes involving the manufacture, distribution trafficking, and possession of heroin.
Florida state law makes possession of 4 grams or more of heroin a trafficking offense. If convicted of trafficking you will be facing a mandatory prison sentence of from three to thirty years in prison. Possession of 14 grams or more can mean 15 years in prison, and 28 grams or more mandates a minimum sentence of 25 years.
A Gainesville drug crimes attorney from Kinsell Law Firm can provide the legal defense that you are entitled to under the law. We will determine if your constitutional rights were violated because of unreasonable searches and seizures, and, if warranted, we will move to have your charges dismissed, or file a motion to suppress evidence in your case.
Heroin Possession: Aggressively Defending Your Rights
