Facing Cocaine-Related Charges?
Call a San Antonio Drug Crime Lawyer!
Even having the tiniest amount of cocaine on you can lead to harsh penalties, and the more that you carry, the heavier your punishment will be. Drug charges can be considered either misdemeanors or felonies, with felonies carrying much more severe consequences. A felony drug charge can mean multiple years in jail or prison, steep fines, and a mark on your record.
Severest Charges Involving Cocaine
Cocaine is an illegal substance, and possessing, selling, or trafficking the drug can bring federal charges, as well as penalties from the state. Having even less than 1 gram is considered a felony, and for the highest amounts, you could face up to 99 years in jail.
Here are some additional offenses that can be charged along with possession:
- Possession with intent to sell
- Distribution or trafficking
- Driving under the influence of cocaine
- Selling to a minor or in a school zone
Felonies show up on a criminal record, which can be looked at when someone runs a background check on you. If these are discovered on your record, it could make it very difficult to land a job or apply for a line of credit, and make you ineligible to apply for certain professions or licenses. You need to contact a San Antonio drug crime lawyer immediately to craft a defense strategy for your case.
