Sale / Delivery

In Florida, "deliver" or "delivery" means the actual, constructive, or attempted transfer from one person to another of a controlled substance.  These transactions are often done under surveillance and might be video or audio recorded.  In many cases, Law Enforcement use "confidential informants" in the transaction and the State's case is built upon the information provided by these individuals.  
The unlawful sale of any drug is a felony.  Most charges involving the sale of controlled substance are second degree felonies, which means that they are punishable by up to 15 years in prison (this is the statutory maximum).  The sale of marijuana and sale of certain pills are third degree felonies and punishable by up to five years in prison (the statutory maximum).  As a result of population growth from Stuart to Vero Beach, and the construction of more schools, day care facilities, churches and convenience stores, more and more people wind up with enhanced charges.  Florida Statute 893.13 specifically provides for enhancement penalties if the crime occurs within 1,000 feet of a convenience business, place of worship, school, or day care facility.  A link to Florida Statute 893.13 is here for your convenience.
