Understanding Texas Drug Laws
The State of Texas has among the strictest drug laws in the country. If you have been charged with possession, use, sales, or distribution of illegal drugs, you need an attorney with specific experience in criminal law and drug defense. A conviction will result in a permanent criminal record and lasting consequences beyond the criminal penalties.
The consequences of a drug conviction may include:
- Time in jail
- Community service
- Loss of employment
- A permanent criminal record
The penalties for conviction vary significantly, depending on the specific activity, the type of drug, the quantity, where you were arrested, and other factors. Any conviction for a drug crime will follow you throughout your life and limit your future opportunities for employment and education. For this reason, it is important to fight the charges with the help of a qualified criminal defense attorney.
