Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with a Drug crime?
If you are facing drug charges in Houston, you should know that you are not alone. Drug charges are scary, but with the help of an aggressive, experienced defense attorney, you could potentially get your case dismissed in certain situations. Below is a guide to help you understand the different types of drug charges in Texas and what the possible fines and penalties are for a conviction.
Types of Drug Charges & Crimes in Texas
Drug charges carry some of the heaviest fines and penalties in Texas. Being charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell or Deliver is a serious matter. Under Texas law, drug crimes are defined as an offense that involves the possession, sale, use, manufacturing or growing of any controlled substance/illegal narcotic. If you have been charged or arrested for conspiring to sell, possess, or manufacture drugs you need an experienced Houston Drug Trafficking Attorney.
A drug trafficking charge can be leveled against more than those who are considered “drug dealers”. This charge can befall anyone who transports medications across country borders or state lines in order to save money or avoid detection. Carrying prescription medicine without your actual prescription bottle could even subject you to charges.
You need serious defense if you have been charged with:
- Drug delivery
- Selling drugs
- Transporting drugs
- Drug manufacture
An arrest for drug trafficking is never a small matter, no matter the version of the charge. No one should ever attempt to defend himself or herself. With your freedom in jeopardy, you need the full knowledge and skill of an experienced Houston Drug trafficking Attorney. If you call me, Attorney Korey Huff, I will review your case with you and advise you of your defense options and possible outcomes.
Drug Trafficking: the Penalties & Defenses
The most obvious cases of drug trafficking involve someone who is caught possessing a large amount of marijuana, cocaine, or another illegal substance while crossing state lines, or in and out of the country. Penalties for trafficking grow more and more severe according to the amount of drugs, with charges typically ranging from a state jail felony (180 days to 2 years jail) to a first-degree felony (five to 99 years in prison).
Your defenses against a drug trafficking charge could include:
- Police found and seized evidence illegally
- The arrest was unlawful
- You had no knowledge of the controlled substances
- You were forced to deliver the drugs under duress
You need proven insight and powerful advocacy to help you take full advantage of these and any other available defenses. If you have been charged with trafficking, you should seek the counsel of a qualified, Houston Drug Trafficking Attorney.
