Cocaine Trafficking Penalties
If you are convicted of manufacturing, selling, transporting, or importing
cocaine in Arizona, you will be charged with a Class 2 felony. An offense
involving more than 9 grams of cocaine is punishable by a mandatory sentence
in the Arizona state prison sentence between 3 and 12.5 years and/or a
fine of up to $150,000.
However, you may also face federal trafficking charges. If you had five
kilograms (around 11 pounds) or more of cocaine in your possession upon
your arrest, you must be sentenced to a mandatory minimum sentence of
10 years in federal prison. That sentence must increases to a 20 year
mandatory minimum sentence if you have a prior drug conviction.
