Understanding Federal Cocaine Trafficking Penalties
Even for a first-time trafficking offense, trafficking cocaine or crack cocaine can result in hefty penalties based on the amount in question:
- 28 grams or more punishable with three years in prison and a $50,000 fine
- 500 grams or more punishable with five years in prison and a $100,000 fine
- A kilogram or more punishable with 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine
- 10 kilos or more punishable with life in prison without parole
Because I have in-depth knowledge of both state and federal sentencing guidelines, I can develop a sound drug defense strategy that seeks the lowest possible penalty in every case.
Protecting Your Rights at Every Turn Possible
Whether you are charged with drug importation, possession with intent to distribute or selling/distributing cocaine, federal prosecutors must prove every element of the cocaine trafficking charges against you. Federal drug enforcement authorities typically proceed to trial only if they believe they have a strong case. I will build a strong defense by carefully examining how evidence was obtained. Any evidence including drugs, paraphernalia and other associated items illegally seized by law enforcement cannot be used to prove the elements of the crime.
