Man already in Florida prison indicted on federal drug charges

A Jamaican man could face life in prison if he is found guilty of drug trafficking charges involving allegedly providing almost 60 pounds of cocaine to a flight attendant. That flight attendant, who worked for JetBlue, has admitted to trying to smuggle the drugs onto an airplane last March.

Trafficking ring uses Florida as transaction base

Many times, drug trafficking takes place across state lines. When that occurs, both states may have an interest in pursuing charges against the individuals defrauding the system and transporting illegal drugs. In this case, the people accused of transporting drugs were stopped and arrested in Ohio, but they specifically went to Florida to gain access to the medications they are accused of wanting to sell.

Traffic violations lead to stop and drug arrest

We have seen it happen so many times in Fort Lauderdale: a car is driven erratically and the driver is pulled over. After a search, the driver finds himself in custody on drug charges. We read recently of this very same scenario playing out south of us in the Lower Keys. That is where a 52-year-old driver was observed by a police officer to be swerving his vehicle on a highway at about 3 in the morning. The man's pick-up crossed the center line 8 times before the police car's lights went on.

Understand prescription drug charges and when they can be levied

The case of the doctor who was charged with illegally dispensing drugs that was recently discussed on this blog brings up the importance of understanding prescription drug crimes. These crimes aren't always committed in the ways that you might think of when you think about drug crimes. There are some very interesting points to understand about prescription drug crimes.

Are there severe punishments for a first-time DUI offense?

Driving under the influence can land you in trouble with the law, but a first-time offense isn't as severe as a second or third. Your attorney can help you look into the facts of your case, so you can see how to best defend yourself against the potential punishments.

Drug court might be an option for possession charge resolution

Criminal charges, even those for things that didn't hurt anyone else, are very serious. If you are facing drug possession charges, you might want to know more about what options you have. We can help you learn about what choices you have for dealing with these charges.
