Experienced Trial Attorney  

Trafficking

If you have been charged with Trafficking in an illegal substance or possessing an illegal substance and the weight of that substance exceeds a specified amount you do face the potential of serving a minimum mandatory sentence in Florida State Prison. If convicted of trafficking a Court is required to sentence you to mandatory prison even if you have no prior criminal record. To be charged with trafficking you do not have to be selling or disturbing the illegal narcotic. The State is only required to prove that you possess in excess of the specified amount.

If you have been accused of Drug Trafficking it is important tat you contact an experienced attorney to represent you. The Attorney’s at Taracks Gomez and Rickman are skilled litigators capable of handling any drug charge including drug trafficking.   Often time we can work with the State to have your charges dropped or reduced so you don’t face the minimum mandatory sentence or fight your case before jury and have you found not guilty of the charge.
