Sale or Distribution
Selling and distributing drugs is typically a felony offense in Florida. Depending upon the type of drug you are accused of selling or distributing, you may face a state prison sentence of 5, 15 or 30 years in state prison. If you are accused of selling drugs within a certain distance of a school or to minors, you will face more severe penalties.
Have you or a loved one been accused of drug sale or distribution in Florida? If so, you could be facing years in state prison.

In addition to jail time, you may face the following penalties:

Additionally, a conviction on your criminal record could mean that your employment opportunities are limited and you cannot provide for yourself or your family.
