What is a Conspiracy to Sell or Traffic in Illegal Drugs Crime in Florida?

Drug Trafficking is when people intentionally sell, buy, make, deliver, possess or transfer a “trafficking limit” of drugs into Florida. Drugs include illegal controlled substances such as heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs and more. The trafficking amount depends on the type of drug. 


Conspiracy to sell or traffic illegal drugs occurs when two or more people agree to – or “conspire” to – sell or traffic illegal substances in Florida. 

The Florida Statute states that anyone who agrees, conspires, or confederates with another person or people to conduct any illegal drug sale or trafficking offense commits the offense of criminal conspiracy.



The consequences for engaging in a drug sale or trafficking conspiracy in Florida depends on the type and quantity of drugs involved in the offense. 


Florida uses a Criminal Punishment Code that ranks certain offenses to determine what their sentence should be. There are levels 1-10, and these levels correlate to a certain number of points. Point levels can translate to minimum allowable prison sentences.

For purposes of sentencing, the crime of conspiracy to sell or traffic in illegal drugs is determined one level below the ranking under the offense attempted, solicited, or conspired to.


For example, Sale or Delivery of methamphetamine is ranked as a second-degree felony carrying a Level 5 Offense Severity Ranking under the Florida Criminal Punishment Code. If you are charged with Conspiracy to Sell or Deliver methamphetamine, the offense will be assigned a Level 4 Offense Severity Ranking because it is one level below the criminal offense of Sale or Delivery.  You would then be given a sentence based on a Level 4 charge.

Conspiracy to Sell or Traffic in Illegal Drugs Defenses 

  • Agreement and Intent: In order for an individual to be found guilty of the crime of conspiracy to sell or traffic in illegal drugs the State must prove that you had agreed to commit the crime and had actual intent to commit the crime.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
