Cocaine Possession Charges

The federal government has created mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines that must be observed in drug-related cases. This means that the judge cannot go under the minimum penalties, so you will face between 1 to 15 years in prison if convicted of cocaine possession. In addition, you could be charged up to $100,000 in fines as well as court costs and surcharges. The court could also sentence you to mandatory drug rehabilitation.

Depending on the amount of cocaine in your possession, you could also face intent to distribute or trafficking charges. Possessing cocaine around a playground, school or other drug free zone could also result in stricter penalties.

If convicted, you could be barred from working in certain professions, such as education or government, and have difficulty applying for professional licenses. You will also lose your rights to vote and own firearms.
