Delivery of Cocaine Attorneys in Michigan
Dedicated to Helping You Get the Results You Need
If you are charged with delivery of a controlled substance, such as cocaine, you will be facing a felony charge according to Michigan law. Cocaine is classified as a schedule II drug, and the penalties for delivery are severe.
Schedule II drugs are considered to have a high potential for abuse and include drugs such as opium, cocaine, morphine, OxyContin, Adderall, and hydrocodone.
The potential for abuse is a critical factor in determining which schedule a drug is placed in, and a particular drug need not be listed in the schedules to be treated as a schedule II drug for criminal prosecution. If you are found with a drug that has a similar chemical makeup to cocaine, for example, the prosecutor will charge you with the delivery of a schedule II drug.
For a more comprehensive discussion on drugs, their classification, and chemical makeup, you can visit the DEA website.
Common delivery of cocaine charges and penalties include:
- Delivery of less than 50 grams of cocaine is a 20-year felony with a fine of up to $25,000.
- Delivery of between 50 – 450 grams of cocaine is a 20-year felony with a fine of up to $250,000.
- Delivery of between 450 – 1000 grams of cocaine is a 30-year felony with a fine of up to $500,000.
- Delivery of more than 1,000 grams of cocaine is a possible life sentence felony with a fine of up to $1,000,000.
