Cocaine Charge Defense

Movies like Scarface and Blow have shown the ups and downs of the cocaine trade and manufacturing business. However, cocaine is also considered a “rich-mans” drug. As such, the California State Attorney’s Office, as well as the FBI and Federal Drug Agencies, cracked down hard on cocaine related crimes.

How to beat a California cocaine charge
Defending a drug case isn’t easy. See, unless you have simple possession charge, most drug cases involve investigations. See, if you get charged with possessing a small amount of cocaine, it typically means you got stopped for something else. Say for instance, you got pulled over for a suspected DUI. The cop searches your car or person, and then finds cocaine in your pocket. Hence the term, “possession” of cocaine.
Now, possession doesn’t just mean small amounts, but for explanation sake, let’s just stick with this analogy. Alright, well if you get caught with just a small amount on you normally this can get knocked down to a charge that will probably carry no jail time at all. However, here is the point we are making. If your’e trying to beat a cocaine charge that did NOT go down this way, chances are you got arrested as part of an ongoing investigation.
This means the District Attorney and DEA believe they have enough evidence on you to put you away for a long time. In fact, if your cases involved multiple people and the word “conspiracy” starts to get thrown around, you might even end up picking up a Federal Indictment. That’s no fun at all.
