Drug Offense Questions
Criminal Law in Orlando and throughout Central Florida
Will I lose my driver’s license if I’m convicted of a drug offense?
It is possible. Under Florida law, you may be subject to a suspension or revocation of your driver’s license for up to two years if you are convicted of a drug offense. If you are currently facing charges of drug possession, drug trafficking, intent to sell, or any other drug offenses, the experienced Orlando criminal defense attorneys at The Umansky Law Firm can inform you of your rights and prepare you for the legal process.
Will the government show leniency on drug trafficking for first-time drug offenders?
Our justice system is designed to not only punish criminals, but to deter future criminal acts. First time offenders are often eligible for drug court or diversionary programs resulting in dismissed charges.
The outcome of your particular drug offense case can be affected by many factors such as:
- The seriousness of the offense
- The amount of illegal or controlled substance in question
- Your cooperation
- The presence of prior charges or convictions on your record
- Current public pressure and political issues regarding drug laws
- Prosecution intentions
- The depth of your legal defense
The aggressive drug defense attorneys at The Umansky Law Firm are ready to evaluate all the factors affecting your case to try and secure the best possible outcome.
If you are charged with drug trafficking or controlled substances, you could be facing mandatory prison time from a minimum of three years to a maximum of life depending on the type and weight of the drug or controlled substance.
Is a warrant needed for any kind of search?
Unless you give permission for a search, there must first be a showing of probable cause before a search warrant will be issued. However, if you are arrested, the officer can search your person and search your home without a warrant, looking for weapons, evidence, or stolen goods. Likewise, a police officer can search your car with no warrant if he believes it might contain illegal or stolen goods, or evidence.
If you’re arrested at home and the officer has no search warrant, only the part of your home where you are can be searched and anything illegal can be taken. In some special circumstances, your home can be searched entirely without a warrant, if the officer believes that evidence may be destroyed.
