Penalties for Meth-Related Crimes
Charges involving methamphetamines have severe penalties in Florida law.
Possession of meth in Florida, regardless of amount, can result in at least:
- 5 years in prison
- 5 years of probation
- Fines up to $5,000
If a person is accused of having 14 grams or more of meth in their possession, they can face increasingly serious charges. Charges for this amount of meth are usually escalated from possession to trafficking. For example, half a gram of crystal meth present in 15 grams of mixture could result in methamphetamine trafficking charges. This results in a mandatory prison sentence, so skilled criminal defense in this situation could maintain your freedom.
Mandatory Minimums for Meth Trafficking in Florida:
- 14 to 27 grams: 3 years in prison and a $50,000 fine
- 28 to 199 grams: 7 years in prison and a $100,000 fine
- 200 to 399 grams: 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine
When a person receives a felony crystal meth conviction, they’ll also face a two-year suspension of their driver’s license and inhibit a person’s ability to obtain a commercial license in the future.
Notably, if a person is accused of having 400 grams or more of amphetamine, they can face life in prison. Additionally, if someone was killed because of a person’s meth trafficking, they face life in prison and, in the most severe cases, the death penalty.
