Cocaine Possession Defense

ORANGE COUNTY COCAINE POSSESSION ATTORNEY

California has strict laws regarding the possession and use of cocaine. A judge can set down the punishment for cocaine possession, which could very likely include jail time and other harsh penalties. If you were arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession, don't hesitate to call our Orange County drug crimes attorney today.

Cocaine is regarded as a Schedule I substance due to its addictive and dangerous nature. Possession of it is a felony offense in California, which carries serious consequences. A typical sentence for cocaine possession is up to a year in jail and/or a year of probation. Based on any aggravating factors, however, such as previous drug offenses and the amount of cocaine on your person, the judge can increase the sentence to up to three years.

Alternatives to prison

Even if there is some substance to your charges, our Orange County criminal defense lawyer can argue to have your sentence reduced. There are a few alternatives in California to jail time for cocaine possession. Whether you receive these options depend in part on your charge, criminal history, and personal situation.

One alternative is Proposition 36 which involves a year of drug treatment rather than jail. Treatment can be inpatient, outpatient, or at a halfway house. Drug courts are found throughout California and typically require general probation terms in addition to regular chick-ins at court.

If you secure Deferred Judgment, you will plead guilty and agree to undergo probation and treatment. Successful completion of treatment together with a clean rap sheet results in having your case dropped.
