Default Florida Charges

A friend is charged with: KEEP PUBLIC NUISANCE STRUCTURE FOR DRUG ACTIVITY, POSSESSION OF CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE (F2), and POSSESSION OR USE OF DRUG PARAPHERNALIA. It's listed as a second degree felony.
Sorry for the caps, I did a copy and paste. This is in Florida

This is his first time being in legal trouble. Is there a mandatory minimum sentence for this? And what is the possibility of going to jail or prison?

Default Re: Florida Charges

I wish to inform you that there may be jail or fine or both in case of charges made against your friend. In this regard drug paraphernalia possession may amount to fine or imprisonment or both. As regards possession of controlled substance it may depend upon thing in possession and quantity of controlled substance in possession. While there may be jail or fine or both in case of small quantity of controlled substance however there may be imprisonment for huge quantity of controlled dangerous substance.

In this case if the charges are proved against your friend he will get a jail time. It is good to consult a lawyer in order to contest the case to avoid a jail time.
