The Texas Controlled Substances Act defines drug trafficking as the delivery or distribution of a controlled substance across state or international lines. Because of Texas’ geographic location bordering Mexico, it is one of the largest drug trafficking areas in the United States. Therefore, law enforcement tends to be more attentive and eager to convict anyone suspected of transporting drugs. At Goza & Carreras, Attorneys at Law, our team includes a former prosecutor who is board certified in criminal defense by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

Take the first step to protecting your rights by calling (817) 402-2188 or contacting us online to schedule a consultation with our Fort Worth drug trafficking attorneys.

Penalties for Drug Trafficking

In Texas, the penalties for and severity of the drug charges depend upon what substance was in possession and how much was present at the time of the arrest. Penalties for drug trafficking charges in Texas can range anywhere from a state jail felony to a first-degree felony, which carries the harshest sentence. In addition to being sentenced to jail or prison, an individual charged with drug trafficking in Texas can be fined up to a quarter million dollars depending on the severity of the charge.

When you retain our drug crimes attorneys to defend you, they will carefully review your case and all the evidence compiled against you. From there they will determine the best strategy for your specific case.

Examples of possible defense strategies against drug trafficking charges include:

  • You were transporting the drugs under duress—your life and safety, or the life and safety of your loved ones, were threatened if you did not carry the drugs
  • There is insufficient evidence to support the charge
  • The substance being transported was not intended for human consumption
  • You were misinformed in terms of what the substance was—for example, being told cocaine was sugar
