Denton Drug Crime Lawyer

Denton County Criminal Defense Attorney

Drug crimes are covered under federal and state laws. They are taken very seriously in Texas, which is why you will need aggressive defense by your side. At Derek A. Adame, Attorney at Law, we have the experience to confidently help you resolve your drug crime charges. Federal drug offenses are regulated by the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, which is known as the Controlled Substances Act. Almost all drug offenses in the state are covered under this act, which is codified in the Texas Health and Safety Code, Chapters 481 - 486.

Penalties for Texas Drug Convictions

When determining how a drug crime will be sentenced, the Texas court considers a variety of factors, such as:

  • Type of drug
  • Amount of drugs
  • Location of violation
  • Purpose for drug possession
  • Other conjoined crimes

Drug crimes are often combined with other offenses, such as theft, assault, and conspiracy. The type of drug can substantially impact the sentence you will face if convicted.

Some of the most common drugs include:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • PCP

Whether you are charged with trafficking, transportation, smuggling, or any other drug-related offense, you should obtain effective legal guidance from our firm.
