Facing a 'zero tolerance' atmosphere when it comes to drug crimes

Of all the states in the country in which law enforcement officials seemingly have a "zero tolerance" policy when it comes to the enforcement of illegal drug laws, some may say Florida takes the cake. As one of the most populous states as well as one through which many illegal drugs enter the country, state and federal law enforcement officials certainly maintain an active presence in Florida. This can have an impact on many different types of cases, from those involving allegations of wide-ranging drug smuggling operations, to those involving something as simple as the possession of marijuana.

When it comes to any type of drug crime in Florida, arrestees and defendants will probably feel like they are at a disadvantage from the get-go. Tough questioning from police officers, direct and forceful allegations from the prosecutor's office -- these are highly likely in any drug crimes case, large or small.

However, it is important for our readers in Florida to remember that even if law enforcement officials and prosecutors maintain a "zero tolerance" attitude toward drug crimes, all defendants have constitutional rights that must be upheld. Illegal searches and seizures may lead to the suppression of evidence, and forceful defense cases in a jury trial can make or break a person's future.

At our law firm, we understand that criminal defendants are looking for options. We do our best to help our clients craft a strong defense strategy. For more information about how we attempt to help Florida residents, please visit the drug crimes overview section of our law firm's website.
