Do Not Let a Drug Charge Ruin Your Future
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.
We offer the aggressive defense representation you need to combat the penalties stemming from a drug conviction, including:
- Fines: A drug conviction may result in fines ranging from a few hundred up to $250,000 dollars. Combined with court costs and other expenses, these fines can quickly become overwhelming. Failure to pay assessed fines may lead to additional penalties.
- Jail time: Individuals convicted of drug crimes may face lengthy jail sentences. Jail terms range from the minimum of 180 days to the maximum term of 99 years. The length of sentence depends on many factors, including the type of charge, substance involved, criminal history and more.
- Rehabilitation: The court has the authority to order drug offenders to undergo substance abuse treatment or rehabilitation. Failure to adhere to this ruling may result in additional and increased penalties. The costs of treatment are the responsibility of the offender.
- Property forfeiture: State and federal laws allow for the seizure of any property involved in a drug case. This includes homes, vehicles, boats, cash and more. Recovering seized property following a conviction may be incredibly difficult, if not impossible.
- Criminal history: A drug conviction may limit your ability to obtain credit, take out student loans, rent an apartment or obtain employment. Fighting charges before they become a permanent part of your record is key to your future.
Whether you face a simple possession charge or a felony drug offense, we help you explore every possible defense strategy to protect your future.
