Our Texas drug crime defense attorney has successfully represented clients facing misdemeanor and felony drug offenses, including:

Texas Drug Penalties

Texas prosecutors take a stiff stance against individuals charged with drug crimes. In many cases, the prosecution will lobby for the maximum penalties allowable in drug cases.

These penalties can have a long-lasting impact on your future and may include:

  • Hefty fines
  • Lengthy jail sentences
  • Mandatory rehabilitation
  • Property confiscation
  • A criminal record, making it hard to find housing and employment

Whether you face a simple possession charge or a felony drug offense, we help you explore every possible defense strategy to protect your future. As your team, we will not only attack the prosecution’s case against you, but we will also seek to recover any property lost due to civil forfeiture laws.

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, there is a belief within the criminal justice system that drug crimes lead to other types of criminal behavior. For this reason, prosecutors in our state tend to be tough on individuals charged with drug crimes. We’ve seen this first-hand, our attorney is also a former prosecutor. Let us protect your rights as aggressively as the prosecution is seeking to convict you.

First Offender Drug Programs in Texas

Tarrant County offers a diversion program for many first-time drug offenders. Through this program, you can avoid the traditional criminal court process and consequences. While you must plead guilty to the charge brought against you, you also get deferred sentencing. If you successfully complete the program, you earn the ability to withdraw your plea and the prosecution will dismiss its case against you.

You have only 90 days from the date of our case filing to apply for this program, and you must work with an attorney to submit the necessary paperwork. For more information, reach out to an attorney at The Carreras Law Group, P.C. today.
