Phoenix Cocaine Charges Attorney

Even an arrest for possession of a small amount of cocaine can lead to jail or prison, fines and a permanent criminal record. Cocaine charges may be filed under A.R.S. 13-3407:

  • Possession, use, administration, acquisition, sale, manufacture or transportation of dangerous drugs:
  • A person shall not knowingly
  • Possess or use a dangerous drug
  • Administer a dangerous drug to another person
  • Transport for sale, import into this state or offer to transport for sale… sell, transfer a dangerous drug

If you were arrested for cocaine possession, sales, trafficking or other charge, you may be facing a mandatory prison sentence without the possibility of probation, pardon, or early release. It is vital to obtain legal representation from a highly experienced Phoenix drug defense lawyer. Attorney Jeremy Geigle has a proven track record representing Phoenix area clients who have been charged with drug violations. Make sure that your lawyer has experience representing drug cases. There is a vast difference between a lawyer who occasionally represents a drug case and a lawyer who represents many, every week and month.

Cocaine Charges and Penalties:

Cocaine charges include:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Distribution or trafficking
  • Drug DUI
  • Selling in a school zone
  • Selling to a minor
  • Others

The prosecution will seek to present your case in the most negative possible light. Factors that will be considered in your case:

  • Your age
  • Your criminal history
  • Your educational background
  • Your employment history
  • The quantity of the drug
  • The dangerousness of the drug
  • Whether there is a legitimate use for the drug
  • Other

Depending on the circumstances of the case and the factors noted above, there may be a wide range of consequences. In some cases you may be able to avoid incarceration by attending a drug treatment program. This is usually applicable when there is a small amount of drugs for personal use and where there is no prior criminal history. Attorney Jeremy Geigle understands the intricacies that are involved in defending your case and he will mount an aggressive legal defense to protect your freedom and your independence.

Successfully Defending Cocaine Charges:

Attorney Geigle will seek to suppress the introduction of evidence in an attempt to obtain a case dismissal. Jeremy will examine the specific circumstances of your case, including the conditions of the arrest. An illegal arrest may result in immediate dismissal as well. He may question:

  • Whether probable cause existed for the arrest
  • Whether the search and seizure was legal
  • Whether a search warrant should have been issued
  • Whether the evidence was tainted due to improper collection or storage
  • Whether your rights were read to you (Miranda warnings)

If you were charged with a cocaine violation, it is extremely important to obtain legal counsel and to have your lawyer present with you whenever you speak. Do not speak without your lawyer present. Nothing good can come from it. Attorney Geigle will advise you every step of the way. It is always advisable to obtain legal counsel as early as possible and to follow counsel’s advice throughout the progression of your case.
