Texas Drug Laws

A Seasoned Texas Attorney Defending You Against Strict Drug Laws

Texas has strict laws on illegal drugs. If you have been accused of a drug-related crime, you need to seek legal help immediately. Drug charges could affect you for a long time. There are many defenses against them, but you need a skilled attorney on your side who has success in criminal defense cases.

A Thorough Understanding Of Defense Strategies

The Carrillo Law Office in Kingsville, Texas, is dedicated to excellent legal representation and service. I am founding attorney Ricardo Carrillo, prepared to provide reliable and effective criminal defense. With more than 30 years of experience and a commitment to staying up to date on the law, I can devise strong defense strategies for many cases, including those related to drug offenses.

I can challenge the validity of the search warrant and whether the police officer had adequate reason to suspect you of a drug crime. I will fight for the best result possible.

Drug-Related Charges Carry Stiff Penalties In Texas

As a former assistant district attorney, I have prosecuted many people on drug-related charges. I know the difficulties they faced. The consequences of a drug charge depend on many factors, including the type of drug, the quantity of the drug and the nature of the crime itself. Penalties for drug possession include fines of up to $2,000 and jail time up to 180 days. If you are accused of manufacturing or distribution of drugs, however, the penalties are harsher.

These penalties can affect your life now and into the future as they are likely to remain on your record. My team will fight to prevent an accusation from ruining your life. I care about each client and want to help them through criminal accusations.
