Los Angeles Cocaine Possession Attorney

Legal Defense for State or Federal Cocaine Crimes in LA

Being arrested for and charged with a cocaine crime, whether it is powdered or crack-cocaine in any amount is a serious matter because it is classified as a felony offense in the state of Calfiornia. It is important to speak with a highly-experienced criminal defense attorney who has previously defended cocaine crimes. The early stage of the investigation undertaken by law enforcement is very crucial and you are going to have many questions. Our law firm is here to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Let us be there with you every step of the way. We know that early involvement by an attorney in any drug crime investigation can make all the difference. Talking with law enforcement at this early stage only helps them build their case against you. Do not talk to law enforcement, talk to the top-ranked law firm of Eisner Gorin LLP.

Cocaine Possession Legal Penalties

Because cocaine is a highly-addictive drug that has the potential to ruin lives, criminal penalties for cocaine crimes are severe and may cost you many years of your freedom. Mere possession of cocaine can result in a prison sentence of anywhere from 2-4 years, while possession with intent to sell increases a sentence to 3-5 years. We can help you avoid a lengthy prison sentence and can seek alternative sentencing such as completion of a drug rehabilitation program. Los Angeles County law enforcement officials and prosecutors take cocaine crimes, even mere possession very seriously and will aggressively pursue a conviction. In order to convict someone, prosecutors must prove that you had the cocaine in your possession, that you knew the cocaine was your possession and that you had control over it.

Cocaine Possession with Intent to Sell Charges

Even more serious than a straight possession of cocaine charge is a charge of possessing cocaine with intent to sell. A lot of times prosecutors will rely on circumstantial evidence surrounding your arrest in order to convict you of possession with intent to sell. For example, prosecutors will argue that because you were in possession of a high amount of cocaine, you must have intended to sell it rather than simply use it on your own. Further, if you are found to be in possession of items such as scales, small baggies, or large amounts of cash, the prosecution will use these facts to argue that you intended to sell the cocaine. This type of charge is very serious and can result in severe consequences, as well as a loss of your liberty for a lengthy period of time. It is essential that you have a highly-experienced attorney at your side, representing you every step of the way if you are facing a cocaine criminal charge.
