Many people do not realize that purchasing of illegal drugs has higher penalties than simply possessing illegal drugs. Similarly, Delivery of illegal drugs carries the same penalties as a sale of illegal drugs, regardless of whether money ever exchanges hands. There are many enhancements involving the sale of illegal drugs and transactions that occur within close proximity to schools, parks and other designated areas; including mandatory minimum sentences. On the Treasure Coast, the State Attorney has a standard policy of seeking jail sentences on all drug sale charges.
Drug Sale cases have become more and more complicated with Law Enforcement’s ability to use technology to track suspects.
