Drug Distribution Laws & Penalties
In order to prove the
drug crime of selling drugs, a prosecutor must demonstrate that the defendant “knowingly”
participated in drug trafficking or possession with intent to sell. For
drug distribution activities prosecuted as possession with an intent to
sell, it is considered a third-degree felony that is punishable by a maximum
prison sentence of five years and fines of up to $10,000.
In Florida, enhanced sentencing is given for those who have prior felony
convictions. The state law refers to these defendants as “career
criminals” and “habitual felony offenders.”
