We Fight All Types of Drug Crime Charges
The severity of the penalties you might be facing if convicted may vary
greatly depending on what sort of drug offense is in question. You can
be arrested for a drug crime for one or more of the following reasons:
Drug possession: Simply having an illicit substance on your person, in your home, or in
your vehicle can constitute a drug possession offense in Texas.
Drug use: If you are caught using an illegal drug, or a prescription drug with intent
to abuse it, you may be arrested. You may also be charged for use if blood
tests reveal the substance in your system without the act of using it
actually being witnessed by police.
Drug distribution: Passing an illegal drug to another person or location can be considered
a form of drug trafficking known as distribution.
Drug sales: Selling an illicit substance for profit constitutes a serious drug crime.
The profit does not necessarily have to be for monetary gain and can instead
involve earning favors or bribery.
Penalties for convictions vary based on the type of drug, the amount, and
even the location of the arrest. In addition to the more commonly recognized
illegal drugs, drug crimes can also include substances that are otherwise
legal but used in an illegal manner, such as vast quantities of prescribed
Punishments if convicted of a drug crime can include:
- High fines – sometimes up to $10,000
- Jail time – ranging from one year to life behind bars
- Loss of employment
- Community service
- Permanent, public criminal record
- Registration on criminal offender lists

Jr. PLLC, we fully understand our clients’ needs and we are proud
