Cocaine Offenses

Scranton Drug Crime Lawyer

Cocaine

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.
