Distribution in a School Zone

Distribution in a School Zone Charges and Penalties

Drug distribution is a crime that occurs when an individual is found to be in possession of a large enough quantity of illegal drugs with intent to distribute to others involved in the drug trade, or personal users. The consequences for a successful drug distribution conviction can result in years behind bars with substantial fines. When the evidence indicates that an act of distribution took place within 1,000 feet of a school zone, the penalties for conviction will increase dramatically.

Florida is widely known to have some of the strictest drug laws in the entire nation. With the persistent threat of smuggling through our long coastal borders to a swiftly rising trend of arrests related to prescription fraud and other crimes involving controlled substances, state law enforcement and prosecutors alike have focused heavily on these growing threats. When an illegal activity like drug distribution purportedly occurs within a school zone, you can expect the full weight of the law and heavily increased penalties. These drug crimes are charged as first degree felonies, and a conviction will have very serious repercussions, including enhanced sentences, in some cases up to life in prison .
