Under Texas law, most drug charges are categorized as felony charges. This means that the punishments are usually more severe, especially when the charges are for drug distribution, trafficking, or manufacturing.
Penalties for drug crimes may include:
- Six months to life in prison
- Hefty fines
- Loss of property and assets
When you have our Lubbock drug crimes lawyer as your representation, you can be sure that we will study your case thoroughly to identify the best possible defense that can help minimize your punishments as legally as possible or even drop it altogether.
Defense Strategies for Drug-Related Charges
The strength of the prosecutor’s drug charges usually depends on the evidence that they possess. However, if the pieces of evidence have been acquired during an illegal search or seizure, they become inadmissible in court. This is why it is important that you let our drug crimes attorney in Lubbock know every detail of your arrest so we can build a solid defense for you and at the same time, expose the weaknesses of the prosecution’s case. We also strongly advise you to speak first with your legal counsel before answering any question from the arresting officer or prosecutor.
