Common Questions: Drug Crimes
I didn't commit the crime. Do I still need a defense lawyer?
It's important that you do everything you can to protect your rights
if you've been charged with a
drug crime in Texas. Innocent people are convicted of crimes every day. Depending
on the crime, if you're convicted you could be facing serious consequences
such as jail or prison time, and possibly thousands of dollars in fines.
Don't go through this process alone, and don't 'get pushed
around. Many drug crimes are felonies that could stay on your record for
a long time, possibly impacting your employment opportunities for years to come.

What should I say to the police if I've been arrested?
We strongly encourage you to say nothing to law enforcement officials until
you have consulted with a
criminal defense attorney. Anything you say, even before you've been taken into custody,
could and probably will be used against you in court. You have the right
to remain silent and to have an attorney present during questioning. It's
usually best to utilize every right you have during the criminal process!
What is a drug crime?
Generally, drug crimes are offenses involving the criminal possession,
sale, distribution, trafficking or manufacturing of a controlled substance.
This also includes illegal possession of prescription drugs and prescription
drug fraud. Frequently drug charges include possession of a controlled
substance, possession with the intent to distribute, delivery of a controlled
substance, trafficking, and more.
What kind of punishments do I face if I'm convicted?
Depending on the crime, if you are convicted, you may be punished with
imprisonment, fines, community service, probation, and mandatory drug
and alcohol counseling. In addition to these harsh consequences, a conviction
for a drug-related crime on your record could make you ineligible for
employment for some companies.
