Drug Charges Archives

Alleged drug dealer convicted of murder

For many people in Florida, when they think about the types of criminal charges that someone accused of selling drugs might face, murder may not generally be on the top of the list. Things like distributing illegal or controlled substances, illegal distribution of prescription drugs or even possession of drugs and drug paraphenalia may be more along the lines of the charges they may expect to hear a person is charged with.

Cocaine possession and the price to pay

As a whole, America's attitudes toward certain illegal drugs are recently changing -- especially toward substances such as marijuana. Yet cocaine and other, harder drugs still remain in a negative spotlight. Sometimes, an individual is simply at the wrong place at the wrong time, and is in possession of a hard drug that could result in penalities that remain on their record forever. This stain on a record can inevitably wreck a person's career, prevent them from finding new jobs and can even worsen their overall quality of life. In Florida, there are clear laws that state the varying penalties attached to the possession of cocaine, but penalties can entirely depend on each individual drug arrest. 

Detailing Florida's pretrial intervention program

A drug conviction can hang over you like a stigma, affecting your reputation, your relationships and even possibly your career. Many of the clients in Naples that we here at The Calderone Law Group PA have represented have come to us looking for solutions to avoid having such an association haunt their lives and, if possible, avoid the crminal penalties that can come with a drug charge. If you are looking for similar assistance, you will be pleased to hear that Florida does indeed offer diversion programs that allow you to get past a drug arrest. 

Prescription drug addiction and abuse

Many situations or conditions may require medical treatment with a prescription drug. If you have been prescribed a medication by a doctor in Florida, you should educate yourself about that drug's side effects. The potential to become addicted to a drug is another thing that is important for you to know about.

Racketeering conspiracy one of many charges against gang members

Florida residents who find themselves accused of serious drug crimes can sometimes find it hard to believe they may have a real chance to defend themselves against these types of allegations. This can be especially so if stories about the cases hit the media. These types of reports generally omit many details and those details that are included may well paint a picture that makes it easy for the public to assume people are guilty. When this happens, people need to try and focus on the facts of their case and not the rumor mill that can be created by the media.

New Jersey residents who have been arrested for multiple crimes can sometimes start to lose hope that they may be able to defend themselves against any charge levied against them. In some cases, this may even contribute to a negative spiral for some defendants. At this time, remembering that every person is legally considered innocent until proven guilty and that every defendant is owed a defense is highly important.

What are drug schedules?

Have you been arrested and charged with a drug crime in New Jersey? Do you know someone else who has been arrested for a similar offense and yet the specific charges and potential penalties you may face vary quite a bit from the other person's? If so, this may be related to which substance is involved in each of the two cases.

Understanding Florida's drug court

In 1989, the state of Florida established the first-ever drug court in the U.S. According to the Florida Courts, there are now 98 such programs across the state, 47 of which are targeted at adults charged with felony drug offenses. Other drug courts are for people accused of misdemeanors, for juveniles or for people facing impaired driving charges.

Two proposed laws target accused opioid dealers

In Florida and around the nation, the laws have been getting harsher when it comes to many drug crimes. Sadly, this may lead to people being punished or put in jail instead of being given the help they truly need. Now, state  lawmakers will be reviewing two new proposed laws that would only further this negative cycle.

Drug charges levied against hospital executive

Florida residents who think about people being charged with drug crimes might not generally think about successful white collar executives being in this position. That is quite the opposite of the stereotype of a drug offense defendant. However, anyone can be accused of illegal activity involving drugs. In fact, an investigation that allegedly lasted for two years recently resulted in the arrest of a man who was the executive director of Florida Hospital Oceanside.
