Dallas Cocaine Lawyer

Drug Crime Attorney in Dallas

The state of Texas imposes some of the harshest drug crime penalties. As a schedule II drug, cocaine is classified as a dangerous controlled substance that poses a serious potential for abuse. As such, the Texas legal system comes down hard on those who commit drug crimes involving cocaine. As with any drug crime allegation, the charges and potential penalties you can expect to face will vary depending on the circumstances involved in your case.

Penalties for Possession of Cocaine in Texas

As possession charges are the most common types of drug offense, The Law Office of G. Thayer Williamson has provided the following information about the penalties you face when prosecuted for possession of cocaine:

  • Less than 1 gram: up to 2 years in prison and up to $10,000 fin
  • 1 gram - 3.99 grams: 2 - 10 years and up to $10,000 fine
  • 4 - 199 grams: 2-20 years and up to $10,000 fine
  • 200 - 399 grams: 5 - 99 years and up to $10,000 fine
  • 400 grams or more: 10 - 99 years and up to $100,000 fine

Possession charges can be effectively dismissed or significantly reduced through the use of several defense strategies. The strategies that can be applied to your case will depend on a number of factors, particularly the amount of cocaine you allegedly had at the time of arrest and your prior criminal record. In some cases, especially for first offenders, there may be alternative dispute resolutions available and /or alternative sentencing options that can potentially keep you from jail, which is why you should enlist a knowledgeable Dallas drug lawyer for your case.

A Former Prosecutor on Your Side

As a former prosecutor and municipal judge in The Colony, I have accumulated an extensive working knowledge of the ways in which drug crimes can be successfully defended. Additionally, I have represented many clients who have been accused of cocaine possession and fight aggressively to reduce or dismiss charges and potential penalties.

Working with an experienced Dallas drug crimes attorney can be an invaluable benefit to your case. When you face more serious drug crime allegations involving cocaine, including possession with intent to distribute or sales, aggressive representation becomes a necessity if you wish to reduce your risk of suffering the maximum penalties.
