Drug Crimes


Houston Drug Crimes Attorney


There are no statutory penalities in Texas that specifically criminalize drug use. Instead, what is generally criminalized in Texas is drug possession. Drug possession is a statutorily defined term. In order to prove a person possessed drugs or contraband the state must prove you exercised "care, custody, control, and maintenance," over the substance. There are a multitude of factors that must be analyzed to determine whether the state can prove the accusation.  

Drug crimes in Houston are taken very seriously and the penalties associated with them can range from Class C misdemeanors all the way up to First Degree Felonies, depending upon the amount seized. Drug crimes can be charged as state or federal offenses. Convictions can lead to jail or prison time, a criminal record, drivers license suspension, and can dramatically impact your quality of life as far as gaining employment, finding housing, getting a home or school loan, becoming a professional, or being accepted to certain colleges or universities. Because all the cards are stacked against you after conviction of a drug crime it is essential to hire an experienced and tenacious criminal defense lawyer in Houston, TX before it is too late to prevent one.
