Probable Cause Hearings in Florida Drug Cases

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Talking privately with a criminal defense lawyer about your pending criminal case is your legal right.  Often, your lawyer will say something during that first meeting that puts you at ease and assures you that the worst-case scenario, in which you spend months in county jail or years in prison, will not come true. … Read More »

Don’t Let the Reid Technique Turn Your Drug-Fueled Adventure Into a Kafkaesque Nightmare

By FL Drug Defense Group |

As its name suggests, the criminal justice system is supposed to intervene when police and prosecutors behave unfairly or fail to respect the rights of defendants.  This is why the courts exclude pieces of evidence that police obtained illegally, and even dismiss the charges if the remaining evidence is not enough to build a… Read More »

Could Your Florida Drug Case End in a Mistrial?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

One of the rights of defendants in criminal cases is the right to a fair trial, which means that the trial takes place without unnecessary delays, the outcome is decided by unbiased jurors, and unless there is a compelling reason to conduct the trial in private, it is open to the public.  If you… Read More »

Eyewitness Testimony Isn’t as Incriminating as You Think

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The old saying goes that you should believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.  Therefore, hearsay evidence is not admissible in court.  If your neighbor says that another neighbor claims to have seen you hours before your arrest and that you appeared to be under the influence of drugs,… Read More »

Martin County Sheriff’s Deputies Seize 10,000 Fentanyl Pills in Drug Bust

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The scary thing about fentanyl is that even a tiny amount can kill, and even scarier than that is that many victims of fentanyl overdose were not even aware that the drugs they were consuming contained fentanyl.  Instead, the victims though that the white powder they purchased on the street was cocaine or methamphetamine,… Read More »

Can You Use an Alibi Defense in a Drug Case?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Somewhere in the living room of a rented single-family home in Florida, a McMansion turned drug den, a group of people are sitting on couches around a coffee table, passing around a joint even though each of them is already high on a unique combination of substances.  Some of the participants are lifelong friends,… Read More »

Drug Court Is Not a “Get Out of Jail Free” Card

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Drug courts are a welcome contribution to criminal justice reform, and they are present in all of Florida’s most populous metropolitan areas.  If you get arrested for drug possession and the judge approves you for participation in drug court, you can emerge from the experience without a criminal conviction on your record if you… Read More »

Police Find MDMA “Drug Factory” in Brevard County House

By FL Drug Defense Group |

This past summer, police in Rockledge conducted a drug bust at a residential address.  They found some heroin and Percocet pills, although the Click Orlando website did not specify how much, as well as three handguns that had previously been reported stolen in Brevard County.  What they had really been looking for, though, was… Read More »

Should You Use the Entrapment Defense in a Drug Case?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

“I didn’t do it” is not the only possible defense to criminal charges, especially not where illegal drugs are involved.  If police find drugs in your car, it is hard to argue that you do not have drugs in your car, although it may be possible to argue that you did not know that… Read More »

Do Affirmative Defenses Work in Drug Cases?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

It is sometimes possible to be acquitted of a crime if you admit that you committed the act, but you claim that you had a reason for doing it that absolves you of criminal liability.  This type of defense strategy is called an affirmative defense.  It means that you are not saying, “I didn’t… Read More »
