Trafficking in Illegal Drugs (28 grams to 30 Kilograms) in violation of Florida Statute 893.135(1)(c)1c is a first degree felony that is punishable by a maximum of 30 years and has a minimum mandatory sentence of 25 years. This means that if convicted of that crime, the Court must impose the 25 year minimum mandatory sentence under many circumstances, and the client must serve that sentence day for day.

Filing and litigating innovative motions to suppress is often the most important part of fighting any drug trafficking case. These serious felony cases require a tremendous amount of work because your Tampa drug trafficking attorney must thoroughly investigate every issue in the case by taking the depositions of every state witness, filing the appropriate motions to suppress or motions to dismiss, gathering evidence to present at the hearing, and thoroughly preparing legal arguments addressing all of the relevant Florida case law on any particular issue in the case.

If you have been arrested for a serious drug offense such as trafficking in a controlled substance or armed trafficking in Tampa, Hillsborough County, FL, call an experienced attorney at the Sammis Law Firm to discuss your case today.

Extradition to Tampa, Hillsborough County for Violation of Probation

Individuals can be arrested while out of the state of Florida on a warrant issued within the State of Florida. In many of those case, the person sits in jail while they wait for Florida to send a bus to pick them up and take them back to the county that issued the warrant.

Often individuals sit in jail for 30-90 days while waiting to be extradited. In many of these cases, a criminal defense attorney might be able to convince the judge that issued the warrant in Florida to lift the warrant so the individual can travel back to Florida voluntarily and avoid the expense and inconvenience of extradition. This often benefits both the individual being detained and the State of Florida.
