Riverside Cocaine Attorney

California Cocaine Charge Defense Lawyer

State and federal laws regarding illegal drugs are confusing and complex. They can also seem inequitable or unreasonable. Nowhere is this more apparent than in federal laws concerning crack cocaine and powdered cocaine.

As with all drug charges, the penalty for cocaine offenses depends upon the type of drug and the amount a person has in his or her possession.

The 100:1 Crack/Powder Cocaine Ratio

Federal sentencing guidelines for possession of five grams of crack cocaine automatically trigger a five-year mandatory minimum sentence. It takes 500 grams of powder cocaine to trigger the same mandatory five-year minimum sentence. This "100:1 crack/powder ratio" means street dealers of crack cocaine are punished far more severely than the powder cocaine dealers who sell them the raw materials to make crack.

Though it seems unreasonable, it is the law. That is one reason it is extremely important to retain a Riverside criminal defense attorney who is experienced defending clients against all state and federal charges relating to possessing, distributing, or manufacturing crack or powder cocaine. Whether you were accused of possessing one rock of crack; kilos of powder cocaine; or precursors to manufacturing such as scales, baggies, and baking soda, we can help.
