Florida State law enforcement takes drug trafficking crimes and accusations seriously, perhaps more so than other states in the country due to international waters surrounding the peninsula. If you have been accused of this drug crime, the prosecution will not show you any leniency. Depending on the details of your particular arrest, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) could have an interest in seeing you convicted and lend their strength to the opposition. What can you do to protect yourself when so much weighs on the outcome of your case?

Drug Trafficking Penalties in Cape Coral, Florida
Located on the west coast of Florida, adjacent to Fort Myers, Cape Coral can be a busy hub all throughout the year, not just during the summer season. In fear of potential drug trafficking rings from forming in the populated city, law enforcement cracks down harshly on anyone who has been accused of trafficking, selling, or moving illicit controlled substances.
If you are convicted for drug trafficking crimes, you could be penalized with:
- Years spent behind bars
- Expensive fines paid to the state
- Strict probationary periods
- Loss of job opportunities
Drug trafficking sentencing will vary depending on what substance was allegedly trafficked, and how much of it there was in question. It only requires a few ounces of some illegal drugs, such as cocaine or heroin, to make the trafficking of it a felony violation. By its legal definition, a felony crime carries a conviction of at least one entire year in state or federal prison, generally with little to no chance of obtaining parole.
