How long does cocaine stay in the system ?

How long does cocaine stay in the system before it cannot be detected. I have recently disclosed that my husband (who I have now left) has been taking cocaine for many years and has been abusing me (sexually). I am hoping that he will be tested so that the truth can be seen as he is now denying not only the abuse but also taking the cocaine. The last time he took it was about 15 days ago that I know of. Is it too late for the police or doctors to test to get the truth?

Cocaine is detectable in the urine for approximately 72 hours.
With physical abuse it is important to take pictures of injuries and report to authorities as soon as possible.

Detection of cocaine in urine is effective tough in your situation difficult to get!
I suggest hair analysis: see site:analysis of hair for cocaine By Gary L. Henderson.
Newer techniques are even more specific and show use after a longer time.So Ask a lab to investigate hair from partner from all places you can find in your home.
