Hello,

Thank you for the additional information.

In Florida, the drug charges alone carry the following maximum penalties:

Possession of marijuana (20 grams or less): 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine;

Possession of a controlled substance (cocaine, heroin, etc.): 5 years in jail and a $5,000 fine;

Possession of drug paraphernalia: 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine;

Based on the following, it is my opinion that your son received a very good plea agreement.
