If you or someone you know is under investigation, under arrest, or otherwise connected to a controlled substance offense, it is critical to consult with a lawyer before making a statement to police, investigators, or federal agents. Contact our Jacksonville law firm if to arrange a free consultation with a criminal defense attorney about your situation.

Our lawyers have assisted clients in these cases by prevailing through motions to dismiss and not guilty verdicts in federal and state narcotics trials. Motions to suppress evidence collected through improper law enforcement search and seizure procedures that violated our clients' Fourth Amendment rights have resulted in suppression of evidence and the outright dismissal of charges all together. In other cases we have demonstrated that the statute of limitations ran out or that other procedural laws were violated thus ensuring against conviction.

We have handled and are prepared to handle the charges relating to trafficking, manufacturing, possession and distribution of significant quantities of all narcotics, stimulants, and hallucinogens, including cocaine (coke), crack cocaine, crank, MDMA / ecstasy, heroin, PCP, Methamphetamine (meth, crystal meth), GHB, steroids, and prescription drugs such as Oxycontin and Hydrocodone.

Alternatives to Harsh Penalties

Conspiracy to import, distribute, traffic or dispense illegal drugs in federal court can carry mandatory sentences of 10 years to life. In Florida, drug trafficking charges are punishable by up to life in prison with up to 15 years of minimum mandatory time. Stone Lockett has developed and successfully employed many effective defenses against major drug charges to significantly improve outcomes for our clients, even when the evidence seems insurmountable.

If we cannot obtain dismissal of charges or secure a not-guilty verdict at trial, we aim to at least breach the minimum mandatory sentence. We negotiate with prosecutors for the least harsh prison term, or for suspended or alternative sentences.

We fight serious drug charges by aggressively challenging evidence and procedures:

  • The legality and execution of a wiretap. Police must operate under strict rules, and we have succeeded in suppressing evidence obtained from wiretapping.
  • We have successfully argued drug bust entrapment when informants and undercover agents led our clients into large-scale sales or operations they would not normally have been involved in.
  • We cross-examine informants to expose their self-serving motivations and question their credibility, resulting in suppression of evidence or reasonable doubt if the prosecution's case hinges on their testimony.
