Arrested For A Drug Crime?

Few things can destroy a person's future like a conviction for a drug crime. Florida is tough on these crimes. Even first offenders accused of marijuana possession may face serious penalties. If you are convicted, you may be fined or imprisoned. You will be left with a mark on your record that will follow you around and impact your life in surprising and negative ways.

However, you do not simply have to sit back and accept the penalties. You can fight drug charges with the help of a trusted criminal law attorney. At The Law Office of Cheyenne Whitfield, P.A., in Brandon, we provide drug charge defense representation to people in the Tampa Bay area and the surrounding parts of Florida. You can count on us to work hard in order to protect your future and help you move on with your life.

We defend against drug crimes involving marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and prescription drugs like Oxycontin. These crimes include:

  • Drug possession with intent to sell
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Drug sale

Exploring Every Angle To Defend You Against A Drug Charge

We will examine the case against you carefully. While the prosecution will certainly present it as being strong, we may be able to find weaknesses in surprising places. Was the arrest handled correctly? Was a warrant used? If it was required, was it correct? Was there an illegal search or seizure? Even looking closely at how the drugs were measured is important, because charges and penalties are often based on the quantity involved.

We will do everything possible to shine a light on the weaknesses in the case against you and seek reduction or dismissal of the drug charges. When appropriate, we will push for the case to be handled in drug court, which can be beneficial when there are addiction issues that need to be addressed and treatment is more appropriate than punishment.
