Scranton Drug Crime Lawyer
Cocaine is the most widely abused drug in Pennsylvania, and more drug offenses
involve this controlled substance than any other type of drug. Both powdered
cocaine and crack cocaine are readily available throughout the state,
and as a result many individuals are charged with drug offenses as a result. Cocaine
possession, cocaine trafficking, cocaine sales, and cocaine manufacturing are the
types of charges most often placed against people in Scranton & Wilkes-Barre.
If you or someone you care about has been charged with a
drug crime involving cocaine, it is important to immediately contact a lawyer.
Possession of smaller amounts of cocaine (without intent to sell or distribute)
will typically be charged as a misdemeanor offense, which is punishable
by 1 year in jail and/or $5,000 in fines for first time offenders. Repeat
or subsequent offenders could face increased penalties of 3 years in jail
and/or $25,000 in fines. Cocaine sale may be charged as a felony and could
result in 15 years in prison or $250,000 in fines. Individuals selling
cocaine to minors may face double these penalties.
