- Methamphetamine (meth, ICE, crystal meth)
- 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 and in some cases 25 years of minimum mandatory time. Mitchell A. Stone has developed effective defenses against major drug charges to significantly improve the chance for favorable outcomes for clients, even when the evidence seems insurmountable.
Sometimes challenging evidence and procedures is necessary. Attorney Mitch Stone will file motions challenging:
- The legality and execution of a wiretap. Police must operate under strict rules, if not it can result in rulings suppressing evidence obtained from wiretapping.
- The manner in which clients were arrested. Entrapment can occur when informants and undercover agents encourage law abiding people to become involved in crimes they would not normally have been involved in.
- Informants and undercover operatives sometimes cross the line and understanding how to attack their credibility is crucial. Effectively challenging informants can result in suppression of evidence or support reasonable doubt if the prosecution's case hinges on their testimony.
