Cocaine Possession Penalties in New Jersey

Penalties for possession of cocaine are based on the eight of the drugs in possession and whether it was personal possession or possession with the intent to distribute. For a basic possession charge, it is usually classified as a third-degree offense, carrying a maximum penalty of five years in prison. However, if you have no prior convictions, it may be possible to avoid prison time as part of your sentence.

In some instances, pretrial intervention will be an option. We will conduct a thorough investigation into the facts of your case and seek a result that protects your rights and limits your exposure to harsh criminal penalties as much as possible.
