America’s attitude towards certain narcotics has changed in recent years. In spite of this shift, however, Texas remains a state with tough penalties for narcotic-related offenses. Prosecutors aggressively pursue such charges and Judges have little patience for those who fail to follow the law. Being convicted of a drug related offense can result in prison time, a permanent criminal record, deportation for non-citizens, and more. These are just some of the reasons why you should contact a criminal defense lawyer if you or a loved one have been arrested. Joey Tellez is a Laredo attorney who handles cases which involve illegal drugs or controlled substances. Joey handles all matters in our office personally and he takes pride in the level of service he provides. Contact our office today to speak with a lawyer.
Laredo lawyer handling charges which involve drug trafficking, heroin possession, methamphetamine, and more
Texas has harsh laws when it comes to illegal narcotics. Charges can range from a misdemeanor to a felony. Depending on the circumstances a defendant may also find themselves charged in federal court. If the accused was in possession of a gun while committing the offense then they may face even greater charges. Typical matters involving drugs can include:
- Drug trafficking
- Heroin related offenses
- Methamphetamine related offenses
- Prescription drug charges
- Charges related to marijuana
- Other types of drug cases
