Get Help from Our Tampa Drug Crime Lawyers
Crack is a form of cocaine with highly addictive properties. Selling or possessing crack, even in quantities much less than what would be required for trafficking charges, can carry some very harsh penalties including a criminal conviction, jail or prison time, and a driver's license revocation. All offenses related to crack, whether trafficking, sale, delivery, or possession, are felonies.
A felony drug conviction can have devastating, permanent ramifications related to employability, credit, or even obtaining a lease on real property. It is vital to retain the services of an attorney familiar with drug charges to maximize the opportunities for a favorable outcome. If you or someone you know has been charged with a drug crime involving crack in Tampa, you are urged to contact a Tampa drug crimes defense attorney.
