The Tenacious Defense You Need When Facing Drug Charges
Some drug laws are easing throughout the country, but not here in Florida. For years, penalties for drug convictions have really only gone in one direction: Ever harsher. When facing charges, you need an attorney tough enough and skilled enough to give you the defense you deserve.
In Fort Myers and throughout Southwest Florida, the firm to call is Cantor & Cantor. Attorney Zack Cantor has been tenaciously defending clients for 15 years against all manner of drug charges. He can help you, too.
You Could Be Facing Multiple Charges
Drugs have been so criminalized that there are many overlapping charges that prosecutors can apply in these cases. You may have been charged with one or more of the following:
- Drug possession
- Drug possession with intent to distribute
- Drug trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
- Illegal possession of prescription drugs
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Drug charges that include aggravating factors (proximity to a school zone, prior convictions, possession of a firearm, etc.)
Prosecutors are aggressive about charging as many offenses as they can justify. Therefore, it is important to attempt to contain the damage by contacting a defense attorney quickly.
There Are No Minor Drug Offenses
While use of certain drugs is increasingly considered socially acceptable and no big deal, Florida’s criminal laws do not match public sentiment. Moreover, criminal convictions of any kind are still considered a big deal to most employers, landlords and school administrators. Therefore, even a conviction for misdemeanor drug possession can make it much harder to get a job, find a place to live or pursue higher education.
For these reasons and more, you have to treat all drug charges seriously and seek the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney like Zack Cantor.
