Omaha Cocaine Lawyer in Nebraska

Hamilton County drug lawyer

Attorney for Powder Cocaine and Crack Cocaine Charges in Douglas County

Cocaine, an addictive narcotic derived from the South American coca plant, has been a major target of The War on Drugs since the late 1970s. Whether snorted, smoked, or injected, cocaine's potential for overdose and death puts it among Schedule I substances like methamphetamine and heroin. Charges for cocaine possession (including with intent to distribute), drug manufacturing, or drug trafficking can result in substantial incarceration and fines.

If you face a cocaine charge, you require a skilled and aggressive criminal defense attorney who knows how to achieve the best possible outcome in your case. Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O. is Nebraska's premier criminal defense firm, led by Attorney Tom Olsen, a Former Assistant State Attorney General, and Assistant Omaha City Prosecutor. He has successfully defended thousands of clients facing serious drug charges and is prepared to do the same for you.

Cocaine Criminal Penalties in Nebraska

If you are arrested and charged with a cocaine offense, a conviction can result in significant incarceration, even for a small amount. Penalties include:

Possession, any amount: Class IV felony, punishable up to two years in prison with 12-month post-release supervision and a $10,000 fine.

Possession with intent to deliver, less than 10 grams: Class II felony, minimum of one year in prison with a maximum of 50 years.

Distribution or intent to sell, 10 to 28 grams: Class ID felony, minimum of three years in prison with a maximum of 50 years.

Distribution or intent to sell, 28 to 140 grams: Class IC felony, minimum of five years in prison and maximum of 50 years.

Distribution or intent to sell, more than 140 grams: Class IB felony, maximum life imprisonment and minimum of 20 years.

Whether you are a Nebraska resident or out-of-state driver charged after being pulled over on Interstate 80, the tenacious and diligent legal representation provided by Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O.. can make all the difference in your case. With three decades of trial experience, Attorney Tom Olsen possesses the knowledge and acumen to attain a favorable result.

Cocaine Defense Strategies

Drug arrests typically begin with a simple traffic stop that leads to a vehicle search by a police officer who subjectively decides there is something suspicious. A drug dog is often brought to the scene to determine if a vehicle contains hidden drugs.

Attorney Tom Olsen vehemently defends clients who are victims of illegal search and seizure by law enforcement. He has helped individuals in numerous states charged with everything from simple possession to intent to deliver hundreds of pounds of marijuana. When your future is on the line, he will fight for dropped or reduced charges, or a second chance under the National Safety Council, Nebraska's Diversion Program.
