Penalties for Meth-Related Crimes

Possession of meth in Florida, regardless of the amount, can result in at least:

  • 5 years in prison
  • 5 years of probation
  • Fines of 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 is crucial.

Mandatory Minimums for Meth Trafficking

  • 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. If a person is accused of possessing or trafficking 400 grams or more of amphetamine, they can face life in prison.
