Substance Instead of a Controlled Substance

Under Florida Statute Section 817.563, Sale of a Substance in Place of a Controlled Substance occurs when a person agrees, consents, or offers to sell a controlled substance, and then sells other substance in its place.

Depending on the controlled substance that is used, this may be a second degree misdemeanor or a third degree felony.  For example, if you sell a piece of gum in the place of crack-cocaine (or attempt to sell it), you may be charged with Sale of a Substance in the place of cocaine.  The substance is the gum.  This is a third degree felony.   However, there are defenses available to you.  To learn more about the defenses available in you case, contact a Jacksonville Drug Crime Attorney.

If you have been arrested for Sale of Cocaine or a Controlled Substance in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida or the surrounding counties, speak with a Jacksonville Drug Crime Attorney.  A Jacksonville Drug Crime Lawyer has experience with sale cases and will defend your rights.  Contact our Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyers by email or by calling 904-685-1200.
