Cocaine Possession Attorney in Chicago
Are you facing cocaine-related criminal charges?
Cocaine is considered amongst the most dangerous of all controlled substances, and as a result, crimes involving this drug are severely penalized. In fact, possession of any amount of cocaine is considered a felony, even if only residue is found. The penalties for a conviction on cocaine charges are often very steep, and can vary in intensity depending upon the specific charge, the amount of cocaine found at the time of arrest, and the past criminal record of the accused. If the charges include trafficking, it could result in fines in the millions of dollars and very lengthy prison sentences.
