Round Rock Drug Distribution Attorney
Criminal Defense Lawyer Serving Williamson County
Texas law enforcement agencies and prosecutors are avidly fighting the
War on Drugs. If you are suspected of any type of
drug crime, you will most likely be charged to the highest degree possible, based
on all available evidence. This approach is designed to not only punish
the offender thoroughly enough to prevent a repeat occurrence, but also
to set a cautionary example to others. For this reason, a criminal charge of drug
possession will often be increased to possession with intent to distribute, even
when there is little or no sound evidence that the suspect was involved in
sales, trafficking or other distribution of drugs.
Two of the major reasons you might face charges of drug distribution are:
- If you were found with extraordinarily large quantities of a controlled
substance, it will often be presumed that you were intending to distribute
the drug to others
- If in addition to the drugs, you were discovered to be in possession of
paraphernalia such as scales, baggies and similar items that are commonly
involved in selling or transporting drugs
Distribution is normally charged as a felony in Texas, punishable by time
in prison, thousands of dollars in fines and lengthy terms of strict probation.
If you have a prior conviction, or if you were arrested for distribution
in proximity to a school, local courts will typically deliver the stiffest
sentence available. An experienced
Round Rock criminal defense attorney can discuss your case with you to determine the best strategy for clearing
your name and preserving your freedom.
