Everyone wants safer streets and security for themselves and their families. But sometimes, Florida’s war on crime seems to have turned into a war on Constitutionally guaranteed rights. Whether the allegations involve drugs, shoplifting, DUI, or other criminal allegations, you have the right to legal representation. The Lake City criminal defense attorneys at Robinson, Kendron & Kennon, P.A. have more than 80 years of experience between them in helping people who are facing criminal charges — and who need the benefit of skilled, trial-tested lawyers on their side for criminal charges.
Representation against drug charges
Your home, property, and person have protections guaranteed to you by the United States and Florida Constitutions. Unfortunately, those protections against government intrusion are not always respected. It takes an experienced criminal defense attorney to not only spot these constitutional violations, but to make sure that the government cannot take advantage of you by violating of your rights. At Robinson, Kennon & Kendron, protecting your constitutional rights is what we do. Our experienced criminal defense attorneys have fought for our clients’ rights – and won.
RKK attorneys fight to preserve your constitution right to be free from unwarranted searches and seizures of your person and property. In addition to suppressing evidence gained in illegal searches, seizures, and traffic stops that were made without probable cause, your Lake City criminal defense lawyer may seek to have you referred to pre-trial diversion or pre-trial intervention programs, a way to defer prosecution and ultimately have your case dismissed.
Penalties for drug charges in Florida can run the gamut from a first degree misdemeanor charge with fines up to $1,000 and up to a year in jail for simple possession of marijuana up to mandatory 25 years in prison and a $500,000 fine for some charges of trafficking. These are serious charges that can carry penalties even beyond fines and prison terms: They can include loss of driver’s license, professional licensure or job — and for students at the University of Florida or any of the colleges in North Central Florida, a conviction can mean loss of or inability to receive federal student loans.
