Penalties For Possession Depend On The Amount
Cocaine is considered a highly addictive, Schedule II narcotic that is completely illegal in Louisiana. The amount of the drug found in your possession will dictate the severity of the penalties. Less than 28 grams can carry up to five years of prison time and $5,000 in fines. More than 400 grams can carry up to 60 years in prison and $600,000 in fines.
Why Hire A Lawyer Instead Of Settling For A Public Defender?
While it is possible to rely on a public defender, working with the attorney of your choice is often much more beneficial. You can rest assured that your case is in the hands of someone who actually knows you and actually cares about the outcome. You aren’t just a case number or an obligation to Mr. Biswas, and he will go the distance on your behalf.
