Cocaine and Methamphetamine
Charges of possession or dealing cocaine or methamphetamine can result in harsh sentences and require an aggressive defense. A person who possesses less than 5 grams of cocaine or methamphetamine commits a Level 6 felony. However, the offense can elevate to a Level 5 felony, Level 4 felony, or Level 3 felony for larger quantities or if a person possessed a gun during the offense. Dealing in cocaine or methamphetamine can be charged as a Level 2 felony if more than 10 grams is involved. When dealing charges are filed, it is critical to hire an experienced attorney who can attack the evidence.
