Trafficking Cocaine in Massachusetts is a felony. While the charges are extremely serious and prosecuted only in Superior Court the sentence that must be imposed depends entirely on the amount of the drug and whether or not the actions took place within one thousand feet of a school zone. This article makes no mention of quantity nor is it suggested that the events took place in a school zone. Also missing from this report is reference to any drugs obtained or seized by the police. Similarly, the account is silent on the presence of drug trafficking paraphernalia.
