About Cocaine Offenses in the Chicago Area

According to a survey from the National Drug Intelligence Center, crack cocaine abuse is the most serious drug problem in Illinois, particularly in Chicago and other urban areas. The forms of cocaine, classified as 'Schedule II,' a category of drugs that present a very high risk of addiction and abuse, include powder, paste, vapor and 'crack' cocaine. If you or someone you know is a suspect in or has been charged with crimes involving cocaine in Chicago, know that these are very serious charges with severe legal consequences.

It's estimated that nearly half of all prison inmates in the United Sates are incarcerated because of drug crime convictions. And while all drug-related crimes are very serious matters, some of the most severe prison sentences involve cocaine-related crimes. If you are convicted of a drug charge, specifically cocaine related, there are many different penalties that you may be confronted with, such as monetary fines, probation, and incarceration. If you are convicted of a drug crime near a school or involving minors your penalties can be even more severe.

However, it is possible for some defendants in drug-related cases, depending on the specific circumstances involving their case, to avoid imprisonment entirely by completing a drug diversion course or drug rehab program. In other cases, a motion to suppress evidence that was obtained illegally may be an appropriate and effective legal defense. If you or someone you know is facing criminal drug charges involving cocaine in Chicago, it is strongly advised that you immediately contact the experienced cocaine criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael P. Schmiege. The legal team will thoroughly investigate your case and create a defense for your particular situation.
