Florida Penalties for Cocaine Drug Crimes
When a person is caught with cocaine, they’ll likely face possession charges if they are accused of having less than 28 grams of the drug. This crime is a third-degree felony.
Florida cocaine possession penalties include:
- Up to five years in prison or probation
- A fine up to $5,000
- Suspension of a drivers license for up to one year
If a person is accused of having more than 28 grams of cocaine, they face trafficking charges. These crimes are considered more serious, are charged as first-degree felonies, and can have more severe penalties depending on how much cocaine a person was accused of having.
Florida cocaine trafficking penalties include:
- 28 to 199 grams: 3 years in prison and a $50,000 fine
- 200 to 399 grams: 7 years in prison and a $100,000 fine
- 400 grams to 149 kilograms: 15 years in prison and a $500,000 fine
