South Florida’s Cocaine Charges Criminal Defense Lawyers
If you or a family member has been charged with possession of cocaine or other drugs or controlled substances, you are not likely to get too much free legal advice from the police or prosecutors in South Florida. While you are in jail worrying about how to get through this serious legal problem, prosecutors may be ignoring your rights. Under federal and state laws, cocaine possession and intent to distribute can mean some of the harshest prison terms in the nation. A conviction for possessing 500 grams of powder cocaine can result in up to thirty years in prison. A conviction for possessing just five grams of crack cocaine can result in a mandatory prison sentence of five years.
