Texas laws are extremely strict concerning offenses related to narcotics and other illicit drugs. Penalties for drug crimes require a drug crime defense to help you deal with everything from probation to fines, jail time or even loss of driving privileges. Most violations of drug laws are covered by the Texas Penal Code and the Texas Controlled Substances Act.
Understanding Different Drug Offenses
The penalties for possession of drugs range from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies, and are dependent upon many factors at the time of arrest. The type and amount of the drug in possession, how it was being carried, concealed and handled, how much (if any) paraphernalia is found and the past record of the offender are all factors taken into account.
There are many different types of drugs, and each classification carries its own offenses and punishment. At The Law Office of Philip M. Gommels, we defend every kind of drug crime allegation.
