Defending Your Rights - Tampa Drug Crimes

If you are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor drug crime in Tampa, you could be forced to spend time in prison or jail.  If you are incarcerated, your life as you know it will drastically change.  Most people will be unable to keep a job and some might even find it impossible to keep housing during the prison or jail sentence.  The social and economic impacts that a drug crime conviction can have on your life are huge.  It is, therefore, extremely important to ensure that your rights are protected.

Drug crimes can involve controlled substances (illegal street drugs) such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine, crack, PCP, ecstasy, heroin or other drugs.  You can also be charged with an offense if you are illegally involved with "legal" prescription drugs.  No matter what your charges entail, you need to speak with an attorney if you have been charged with a drug crime.
