Accusations Of Distributing Cocaine And Crack Cocaine
Crack cocaine and cocaine arrests are still some of the most common arrests in Newport News and the Hampton Roads area.
Any Virginia drug distribution charge can have serious consequences. Since the start of America’s failed War on Drugs in the 1980s, authorities have chosen to harshly prosecute low- and mid-level drug offenders, incarcerating a generation of young people. Crack and cocaine charges still require the strongest possible defense representation.
