Cocaine charges are brought under Florida Statute 893.13(6)(a). Possession of cocaine is a felony no matter how much or how little you possess. If you have been arrested in the Orlando area for a cocaine charge, the defense team of Finebloom & Haenel is available to represent you!
Possession of cocaine is a third degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5000 fine. If you are adjudicated guilty of possession of cocaine your license will be suspended for a period of two years.
At one time the penalties were more severe for having “rock” or “crack” cocaine as opposed to powdered cocaine. That is no longer the case. However, it is much more common for officers to conduct “stings” or undercover buys that target crack cocaine users and dealers as opposed to those who deal or use powdered cocaine.
Cocaine charges carry a stigma within the criminal justice system. While possession of a small amount of marijuana is considered a misdemeanor, all cocaine charges are felonies.
