Arrested For Possession Of Cocaine?
- Intent to distribute
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
If I am your attorney, we can discuss the possibilities such as a probated sentence, or a pre-trial diversion opportunity.
Do Your Charges Include Trafficking Cocaine?
If your cocaine arrest includes charges for trafficking, it is important to understand that the charge carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence. Your best move forward is contacting an experienced attorney who can negotiate your fate with the prosecuting attorney.
Georgia law indicates that any person who sells, manufactures, delivers, or brings into the state of Georgia or anyone who is in possession of 28 grams or more of cocaine or of any mixture with a purity of 10 percent or more of cocaine and the punishment is as follows:
- For a quantity of cocaine of 28 grams or more, but less than 200 grams, the sentence is a mandatory minimum jail term of 10 years and a fine of $200,000
- For a quantity of cocaine of 200 grams or more, but less than 400 grams, the sentence is a mandatory minimum jail term of 15 years and a fine of $300,000
- For quantities of cocaine 400 grams or more, sentencing includes a mandatory minimum jail term of 25 years and a fine of $1 million
I understand Georgia’s laws and have established relationships with the District Attorney’s Office. I am eager to provide you with the ability to prove your innocence. Call my office at 404-988-5809 or contact me online right away.
Providing You With An Assertive And Comprehensive Legal Defense
Your penalties may increase, depending on the circumstances of your arrest. If you had cocaine on you while in a school zone, with a child present, or had your gun with you, the charges against you could be ratcheted upward.
Ultimately the judge is in control of sentencing, which can be based on your prior criminal convictions already on record. I look forward to providing you with dynamic representation as a lawyer well-versed in Georgia’s courts, accountability courts and recovery programs.
