When You Are Up Against A

Criminal Charge, You Need A Tough And Seasoned Defense Attorney On Your Side

You can defend yourself against drug charges for cocaine

Maybe you were driving a vehicle with a passenger who had cocaine and was caught, or you didn't know cocaine was in your home when it was raided and you were charged with a crime. Whatever the reason is that you've become involved in a drug charge, it's important that you have the ability to defend yourself.

Cocaine is one of the worst drugs to be caught with in the United States due to its illegality. Selling, trafficking or possessing cocaine is illegal throughout the United States under both federal and state law. The penalties for the sale or possession of cocaine will vary depending on the amount of drugs on hand at the time of the interception. Usually, there will be a certain amount of jail time as well as fines. Cocaine-related drug charges are usually felonies, even if a person possesses less than a gram.

In Texas, being in possession of 200 grams of cocaine or more can put you in prison for up to 99 years. However, your attorney may be able to work with you and the court to get you into a diversion program if this is your first offense. Some areas of Texas are now working on these programs to help keep offenders out of prison and to get them the substance abuse help they require.

If you are charged with a federal drug crime, you have options for your defense. Make sure to begin your defense as soon as possible to help you avoid unfair biases. With the right support, you can make sure you get the time to speak and explain your situation to the court and prosecution. Our website has more information.
