Drug Crimes

Many people who are charged with a drug crime are surprised to learn how vigorously Texas prosecutes drug cases. Even a first offense involving relatively small quantities of certain drugs can carry the possibility of a felony conviction and a prison sentence. Further, if you have been accused of manufacturing or selling drugs the potential penalties you face increase dramatically. The following types of drugs are commonly encountered in our legal system today:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroine
  • Crack
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ecstasy
  • Various Prescription Drugs

One of the first issues to address in any drug case is the manner in which the substances in question were found by law enforcement. Whether or not a police officer is entitled to search your vehicle or your person is a technical legal question that is based on the specific facts of your case. In certain instances it may be possible to exclude incriminating pieces of evidence from consideration if proper police procedures were not followed. Your case may involve a fact scenario that you feel is uncommon. Why am I being charged with drug possession when I was just a passenger in another person’s vehicle or a guest in someone’s home? What if I wasn’t aware that there were drugs present when I was arrested? These are questions we can answer for you. Contact our office today for a comprehensive case evaluation.
