New Jersey Cocaine Distribution Charges
Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine or Distribution of Cocaine are potentially serious criminal offenses in New Jersey and often times carry mandatory jail sentences. The penalties vary greatly depending on the weight of the drugs involved, the area in which the arrest was made (i.e. on school property or in a public park), and whether or not an accused has a prior distribution or possession with intent to distribute conviction.
Whether you have been charged with Possession with the Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Distribution of Cocaine, Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine or Distribution of Cocaine within 1,000 feet of school property or Distribution of Cocaine within 500 feet of a public park, the Law Offices of William D. Ware, Esq. have the training, and experience to scrutinize the police investigation and exploit any mistakes that the police may have made in gathering evidence, failing to gather evidence or in violating the rights of the accused.
A Certified Criminal Defense Attorney Who Knows How to Challenge the Evidence
Many cocaine distribution charges in New Jersey arise as a result of a police initiated search of an accused person’s car or home. Unlike many other lawyers, our firm has analyzed police conduct on a daily basis for years and argued hundreds of motions to suppress the evidence. Our firm immediately knows whether or not your Constitutional Right to be free from illegal searches and seizures has been violated. If the Police acted inappropriately, our firm does not hesitate to file a motion to suppress the evidence and seek to have the case dismissed.
Also, if you have been “set up” by an informant or undercover police officer, our firm is skilled at challenging the police procedure used to arrest you or any police initiated identification procedure used to implicate you in the crimes charged.
Our Firm Explores Alternatives to Jail
At the Law Offices of William D. Ware, Esq., we have been extremely successful in winning Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine or Distribution of Cocaine (CDS) cases, obtaining probationary terms rather than jail sentences for our clients, or convincing the Prosecutor’s Office to dismiss the charges if a co-defendant has taken responsibility for the cocaine in question. In some cases, we are able to get the cocaine charges downgraded or assist our clients in applying to Drug Court as an alternative to jail.
Uniquely Qualified Criminal Attorneys Are Sometimes Required in Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine or Distribution of Cocaine Cases
Even if it is your first offense, you need an experienced lawyer to minimize the impact a conviction could have on your future. Many Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine and Distribution of Cocaine cases are subject to the New Jersey Attorney General Guidelines referred to as the “Brimage Guidelines.” The Guidelines are an extensive set of rules and charts that dictate the type of offer an accused will receive from the Prosecutor for certain Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine and Distribution of Cocaine charges.
As a former Prosecutor, Mr. Ware worked extensively with these Guidelines on a daily basis for years and he understands their complexities and how the Guidelines can be manipulated to your advantage. Our firm has the unique ability to analyze your Brimage Guidelines offer and determine whether or not the calculation is accurate, excessive or can be challenged.
