Defense for Cocaine Charges
If you have been arrested for any of the above cocaine charges, there may
be defense strategies available to you. For instance, it must be proven
that the drugs in question were yours and that you were the one manufacturing,
distributing, or in possession of them. Perhaps you were simply in the
wrong place at the wrong time and have been charged with a crime that
you did not commit. An experienced
