A: First of all, sorry to hear you got arrested. When it comes to trafficking in cocaine, the punishment depends on the quantity in your possession. The fact that this is your first offense will be taken into consideration.

Secondly, I need more information to advise you on your chances of getting probation or having your charges dropped. You need an experienced lawyer to review the circumstance of your case to determine if your rights were violated or if there are grounds for filing a motion to suppress or dismiss.
