Police say traffic stop for window tinting led to cocaine charge

When a police officer pulls you over, there must be probable cause to stop you. Police officers are not allowed to simply pull you over and start investigating without a good reason. In some cases, even when police claim to have probable cause, careful analysis of the traffic stop reveals that they really didn't.

Under Florida law, when does cocaine possession become cocaine trafficking?

Trafficking in cocaine is a first-degree felony in Florida, but the penalties upon conviction can vary, depending on the amount of cocaine and whether the defendant has any prior convictions. Under Florida law, for a person to be convicted of trafficking, the prosecution must prove that the defendant "knowingly" took part in the manufacture, sale, purchase or delivery of drugs in the state.

Law enforcement agencies often cast wide nets in undercover drug investigations, and sometimes individuals who were in the wrong place at the wrong time find themselves facing serious charges. An allegation that a drug crime has occurred does not automatically lead to a conviction, and a strong criminal defense can challenge the prosecution's evidence and protect the accused from potentially long-term negative consequences.
