At Simms & Associates, in Birmingham, our attorneys frequently deal with cocaine/crack cocaine allegations by looking at all aspects of the case. If your rights were violated, we may be able to have the charges dismissed.

What Are Alabama’s Penalties For Cocaine/Crack Cocaine?

There are three primary classifications of cocaine-related crimes: possession, distribution and trafficking.

  • Possession is a Class D felony. A conviction can result in up to five years in prison and up to $7,500 in fines. Depending on the amount possessed, prosecutors may push for possession with intent to distribute or trafficking charges.
  • Distribution is a Class B felony and applies to the sale, delivery or distribution of cocaine/crack cocaine. A conviction can result in up to 20 years in prison and up to $30,000 in fines.
  • Trafficking is a Class A felony and applies to the sale, manufacturing or delivery of cocaine/crack cocaine. The punishments vary widely depending on the amount of cocaine being transported. 28 to 500 grams has a minimum three-year prison sentence, while over 10 kilograms can result in life in prison without parole.
