Combatting Cultivation Charges
When you are charged with cultivation of marijuana, you are at risk for a third degree felony and associated charges. Under this charge alone, you could face thousands of dollars in fines and up to five years in prison. Increased charges and penalties will follow an offense within 1,000 feet of a school or similar facilities. Without a criminal defense, you could face severe consequences for cultivation.
Fortunately, certain opportunities may allow you to combat your charges. In very limited situations, state law may recognize claims that cannabis was grown as a medical necessity. A more common defense involves an attempt to prove that your Fourth Amendment rights were violated.
Any unlawful search and seizure can constitute a violation of your rights:
- Searching your property without a warrant
- Obtaining evidence without reasonable cause
- Searches performed without legitimate consent
If an officer has violated your rights in any of these ways, the evidence obtained through such a search will be rendered useless in court. As a result, it will be easier to fight your charges and seek a favorable result. With a seasoned drug crime defense lawyer in Tampa, you may be able to dismiss or reduce the toughest charges.
