Jury Instructions in Florida Drug Cases

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution enshrines the right to a fair trial, and a trial is not fair unless all of the participants perform their duties according to the dictates of the law.  This includes the police who obtained the warrants and made the arrest, the prosecutors who made a case… Read More »

Opening Statements in Florida Drug Crime Trials

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Most defendants in drug crime cases do not go to trial, but the ones that do go in with a plan.  By the time the trial begins, your lawyer will have already thought about every witness you will summon and every question your lawyer will ask when examining your witnesses and cross-examining the prosecution’s… Read More »

Vote for Legal Weed in 2024?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The last time you were sober enough to think about it, cannabis laws in Florida were very different from how they are today.  They say that state laws affect your everyday life more than federal laws, but if everyone ignores the law anyway, do Florida’s cannabis laws affect you at all?  After all, you… Read More »

Legal Implications of the Medical LSD Clinical Trials

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Exciting stuff happens in Florida all the time, but this one is different.  When a guy dives into a crocodile pond at a zoo in Florida, it’s just a regular day; only when he dives in a second time to retrieve his phone, and in the process gets the phone but loses a foot,… Read More »

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Somewhere in one of Florida’s many sober living homes, two newfound drug buddies are relapsing as they trade stories about their many efforts to achieve sobriety.  Every offer of help from anyone seems to come with three more obstacles standing between a recovering-for-now addict and long-term sobriety.  This trend holds true even if you… Read More »

Will Your Drug Case Have a Jury Trial?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

If your civics class in high school was especially thorough, you might have learned about the ways that civil trials are different from criminal trials.  You may have learned that judges decide the outcome in a civil trial, but in a criminal trial, 12 jurors make the decision.  This is better than not knowing… Read More »

Is It Possible for the State to Decline to Prosecute Your Drug Case?

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Sometimes criminal cases fizzle instead of ending with a definitive resolution.  The jury might be deadlocked and fail to reach a verdict, meaning that your future is still as uncertain as it was when you first entered a plea of not guilty.  The judge can even declare a mistrial in the middle of the… Read More »

Brady Disclosures and Your Florida Drug Case

By FL Drug Defense Group |

Drug charges such as drug trafficking or possession with intent to distribute can lead to long prison sentences.  If the opportunity is available, many defendants take a plea deal that reduces the charges; spending three years in prison is no fun, but it is better than spending 20 years in prison.  If there is… Read More »

The Drug Sting in the Glove Box

By FL Drug Defense Group |

For people who do not live in Florida, visiting the theme parks of Orlando is a once in a lifetime experience.  The Disney World you visit as an adult when you are an adult is every bit as gleefully overstimulating as you imagined it would be when you were a child.  For Floridians, the… Read More »

You Can Tell Your Lawyer the Whole Truth During Your Drug Case

By FL Drug Defense Group |

The surest way to avoid incriminating yourself is to exercise your right to remain silent.  By not testifying in your own case, or by pleading the Fifth Amendment, you are providing the prosecution fewer opportunities to prove your guilt, which they must do thoroughly in order to get the jury to vote to convict… Read More »
