Cocaine Charges Attorney Miami, FL
Defense for Cocaine Trafficking Accusations in Florida
If you stand accused of trafficking cocaine you will need an experienced Miami cocaine charges attorney to protect you against the harsh penalties you face. One of the more seriously prosecuted crimes in our state is drug trafficking. In the case of cocaine, your charges can be elevated from possession to trafficking, depending on the quantity of cocaine taken at the time you were arrested. For 28 to 200 grams of cocaine, there is a minimum prison sentence of 3 years. The penalty increases with the amount seized and with more than 400 grams of cocaine, the minimum mandatory term of incarceration is 15 years.
When federal authorities charge you with cocaine trafficking, the fines can run into the millions of dollars and prison sentences of not less than 10 years for a first offense. Trafficking is a felony drug crime that demands an attorney who can actively contest the charges, each step of the way, in order to reach a favorable outcome.
