Possession of Cocaine Penalties and Sentencing
Depending on whether you’re accused of having a small amount of cocaine for personal use or whether you had a pile of powder and the State thinks you planned to sell it, you could be looking at anything from a serious misdemeanor with a minimum two day jail sentence (that can be suspended) up to a “special” Class B felony with a possible fifty year prison sentence and up to $1,000,000 in fines.
Powder cocaine is treated differently than “crack” or cocaine base under Iowa law.
