Cocaine Drug Crime Defense

Fight Your Drug Charges with a Marietta Drug Crime Lawyer

The team at Henrickson & Sereebutra shares more than 40 years of combined experience, and they have each formerly served at prosecutors. This gives them a significant edge over most defense attorneys, who have never fought on the other side of the courtroom. Having worked on both sides gives them the unique ability to anticipate, and therefore more effectively combat, the arguments presented by the prosecution.

Cocaine Possession Charges

In Georgia, cocaine is considered a Schedule I drug—even a minor charge of possession may result in a felony offense. The punishments for felony cocaine possession depend on individual circumstances, but most felony crimes result in thousands of dollars in fines, years in prison, and a permanent mark on your criminal record that can make it difficult to advance your career and seek financial opportunities.

Prison sentences are affected by the amount of cocaine in your possession:

  • Less than 1 gram: Up to 3 years in prison
  • 1 – 4 grams: Up to 8 years in prison
  • 4 – 28 grams: Up to 15 years in prison

Possession charges are very common drug crime cases. Our Marietta criminal defense attorneys know that improper police procedure is a common occurrence in many criminal cases. Regardless of your circumstances, it is important to review your case with a skilled legal professional in order to determine whether your rights were violated during the arrest. These factors play an essential role in many defenses against criminal charges.

Cocaine Trafficking Crimes

If you have been accused of trafficking cocaine, the penalties of a conviction increase dramatically. These penalties may also increase if you have a previous conviction related to a drug crime. Trafficking charges are almost exclusively determined based on the amount of a substance you are found in possession of, regardless of intent.

Do not suffer the consequences of a cocaine trafficking conviction that you do not deserve. Our drug crime attorneys have helped countless individuals in Marietta and elsewhere in Georgia protect their rights as they faced serious trafficking charges. A skilled attorney looking after your best interests in court may be the edge you need to secure your freedom.
