Plano Attorney for Defense of Drug Possession with Intent to Distribute
Lawyer in Collin County for Clients Charged with Selling or Distributing Controlled Substances
If you have been charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, you need an attorney with experience successfully defending against drug charges. The criminal consequences of a conviction for manufacturing drugs or intending to distribute illicit drugs are much more severe than the consequences for simply possessing drugs.
Attorney Darlina Crowder has over 20 years of experience handling drugs crimes defense cases in Texas. She and the dedicated team at The Crowder Law Firm, P.C. are ready and willing to fight on your behalf if you have been charged with intent to distribute or any other drug-related charges.
Drug Crime Defense Lawyer Serving Dallas County
Under Texas law, if you are convicted of possession of an illegal substance with intent to distribute or deliver, you could go to prison for many years and face exorbitant fines. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you could even face life in prison and fines of up to $250,000. The severity of criminal penalties largely depends on the quantity of drugs allegedly found in your possession, the type of drug, and whether or not you have any prior offenses.
In addition to the criminal consequences associated with a conviction, there are other ways in which your future could be affected as well. Many employers will not hire someone with a felony conviction on his or her record, and gaining admission to a college or university can be much more difficult if you have a criminal history. Having a drug-related offense on your record could tarnish your reputation for years or even the rest of your life.
Counsel for Intent to Distribute Charges in Federal Court
Most cases involving the possession of illegal drugs for personal use are prosecuted by district attorneys on behalf of the state of Texas. Cases that involve substantially larger amounts of drugs, however, could result in intent to distribute charges filed by United States attorneys in federal court. Unlike those on the state level in Texas, the penalties associated with a conviction on federal drug charges often include mandatory minimum sentences of at least five years in prison. More severe penalties are possible depending on the type of drug and the amount in question. If you have been charged in federal court with possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute, our team has the tools and resources to help you mount an aggressive defense.
