The issues arising from being accused of, or charged with, a drug offense can be complex, and you need the services of an experienced Dallas drug offenses lawyer, without a shadow of doubt. The penalties if you are convicted can be extreme.
Very often, a charge will be brought because you were caught in possession of a controlled substance, but there can also be a charge of constructive possession when drugs are found on a property and, as the defendant, you knew they were there and police say you had care, custody and control of them.
There is also possession with intent to sell or distribute drugs, even for free. Possession of certain drugs with intent to sell, such as cocaine, can lead to prison sentences of up to 99 years. In less serious cases, prison sentences start at 2 years, but can rapidly increase to 20 or 30 years in aggravating circumstances. In general, the greater the quantity of the drug, and the more dangerous it is, the harsher the penalties.
If you have been arrested or charged in connection with any sort of drug offense, no matter how minor it may seem to you, the most sensible course of action is to talk to a professional Dallas drug offenses lawyer who understands all the various technicalities of the law.
You need to understand that the law is against you, even if you know that you are not guilty of any crime. With the law in Texas as it is today, it often seems to be that the state regards you as guilty unless you can prove otherwise, rather than the other way around.
It really is not worth taking any risks. The drug charge lawyers at Hernandez & Baggett handle cases on behalf of clients accused of drug offenses on a daily basis, so have a total understanding of the law. They will fight the case on your behalf, with the intention of seeing that you are not convicted of any crime. Having in the past been prosecutors on behalf of the state, they can see both sides of the picture, and are therefore more qualified than most Dallas drug charge lawyers to defend you.
