In Texas, there are different levels of punishment based on what drugs were involved in the case. The five most common illegally used drugs in Texas are Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin, Various Opiates, and Crystal Methamphetamine. Normally, the biggest indicator of the seriousness of the offense is the amount possessed. Schedule 1 drugs like Marijuana, Heroin, Crystal Methamphetamine, LSD, and Crack Cocaine are drugs that have no accepted medical use and are punished more strict than Schedule 2, 3, 4, and 5 drugs. Schedule 2 drugs are those that have some accepted medical use including cocaine, morphine, and oxycodone. Schedule 3, 4, and 5 drugs are accepted in medical use but are often illegally abused and include codeine, Xanax, and Valium.
Your rights are our top priority and our attorneys will fight hard to obtain a positive resolution to your case.
Assertive lawyers challenge drug charges arising from traffic stops.
Drug arrests frequently arise following a traffic stop for an unrelated offense like speeding, texting and driving, or a inoperative brake light. However, these stops and arrests are not always conducted legally and may not hold up under scrutiny of our attorneys in the court of law. After getting pulled over for a traffic stop, an officer may attempt to search the vehicle in hope of finding illegal substances. Police officers are required to have probable cause or consent before searching a vehicle. Probable cause is acquired by an officer having a reasonable basis for believing that evidence of a crime is present in a place to be searched. It is the burden of the prosecution to prove if an officer had probable cause and our experienced attorneys challenge the prosecution resiliently on this point. Consent is a driver giving the officer permission to search the vehicle. Most individuals are unaware that they have the option to say NO and not give consent to an officer asking to search a vehicle. If you refused to consent to a search and a police officer searched the vehicle anyways, contact an attorney immediately.
Our attorneys will advocate your rights to the fullest extent possible. We can provide a strong and persistent defense by challenging the prosecution at every turn and dedicating the time that every drug case requires. Factors such as examining the legality of the traffic stop or the possibility of coercion by the police officer are substantial in the outcome of your case.
