Atlanta Cocaine Defense Attorney
Facing charges related to possession or trafficking cocaine?
Possession of cocaine, no matter the quantity, can result in up to 15 years in prison, and much longer for repeat offenses or larger quantities. As a Schedule II controlled substance, any case involving cocaine carries heavy penalties. Additionally, if the police believe that the case involves the intent to sell cocaine that has been alleged to have been in your possession, the legal situation is particularly dangerous.
Cocaine and its derivative, crack, are the most significant drug threat that law enforcement faces in the Atlanta metro area. These controlled substances are also believed to be heavily associated with violent crime, and are punished very severely. Additionally, crack and cocaine are alleged to have caused the greatest number of drug-related deaths in Atlanta every year. City and state law enforcement task forces are deeply involved in identifying those who bring cocaine into the community and distribute it. If you are accused of being involved in cocaine trafficking, distribution or possession, the first and most critical issue to resolve is getting an Atlanta drug crime attorney that you can trust to fight for you.
