Cocaine Charges in San Diego

Get Defense from The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC

Most crime charges relating to drugs are a felony. Cocaine is no exception. If you have been charged with a cocaine-related drug crime, you should get in touch with a San Diego criminal defense attorney at The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC, as soon as possible to discuss your case and the circumstances surrounding your arrest.

Like crack, cocaine is a Schedule II drug, meaning it is highly addictive but has been used under close medical supervision for treatment. Its main use, however, is recreational in nature and as such it is illegal. Conviction on cocaine related drug charges can mean years in prison and other serious penalties. We may be able to help with mitigating the penalties or negotiating for reduction of charges, or even getting them dismissed in certain circumstances.

Types of Cocaine Charges

The kind of charge and how severe is closely related to such factors as the quantity of the cocaine involved and whether there is intent to sell; or if a child was present or involved. Regardless of whether you have been charged with making significant quantities of cocaine, or charged with simple possession of a small amount of the illicit substance, you will need an experienced attorney to fight your charges. We take on drug related defense cases, including:

  • Cocaine possession with intent to sell
