Drug trafficking is defined as transporting, importing, or selling illegal drugs, but criminal charges are often based on the quantity involved. While this type of drug crime is a violation of the Texas Controlled Substances Act, bringing drugs across the United States border from Mexico to Texas to sell or distribute is a federal crime. A conviction for drug trafficking can result in years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

If you have been arrested for drug trafficking in Texas, The Crowder Law Firm, P.C. is ready to protect your rights and future. With nearly two decades of experience and more than 200 acquittals, our Plano criminal defense attorney can assess your case and determine all of your legal options in order to get the best results possible.

Drug Trafficking Penalties in Texas

Texas drug trafficking or distribution laws charge the criminal offense as a felony. The specific sentence may be anywhere from a state jail felony, which carries a maximum jail sentence of two years and a fine of up to $10,000, to a first-degree felony, which is punishable by a life prison sentence.

Common drugs involved in these type of cases include:

  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamines
  • MDMA

However, prosecutors may typically offer plea deals to defendants where they may offer a charge with a lesser penalty in exchange for information that would aid in a higher priority investigation.
