A Drug Distribution Conviction Can Mean Life In Prison
Texas is a hotbed of drug activity because it is an easy entry point into the rest of the United States. This has caused the state legislature and law enforcement to crack down hard on anyone caught transporting or selling drugs. If you are convicted of drug distribution, you risk anywhere between 180 days and life in prison and fines of up to $250,000, as well as having your house, car and other assets confiscated. If you are an immigrant, you may be deported. Do not let your opportunity to defend yourself slip by. Hire an experienced lawyer to defend your rights.
A Wide Variety Of Ways To Charge You
Drug distribution charges are typically felonies and the level of severity, as well as the accompanying penalties, will vary depending on:
- The type of drug
- The amount in your possession
- Any prior charges against you
Regardless of whether the drugs were yours or you were merely delivering them, you will be charged as though you were going to sell them. If you were carrying over a certain amount of specific classes of drugs, you may be charged with possession with intent to distribute.
