Drug Cultivation Defense in Tampa, Florida
When you are charged with cultivation of drugs, such as the cultivation of marijuana, you are at risk for a third degree felony. 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.
Fortunately, certain opportunities may allow you to combat your charges.
For example, 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, 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.
