An accusation of dealing, distributing, or trafficking illegal drugs or controlled substances can involve stiffer penalties and harsher—possibly even mandatory—sentences than criminal charges for drug possession. Possible consequences under Texas drug laws may involve a lifetime prison sentence and fines of up to $250,000. If authorities have arrested you and you are facing drug dealing charges, Dallas criminal attorneys Keith and Kevin Harris can draw on their experience as former prosecutors to defend your rights. Between their extensive experience, Keith and Kevin understand the mistakes arresting officers can make and can fully investigate the circumstances that led to the drug charges against you.
The prosecutor may seek additional offenses and criminal charges against you under the Texas Controlled Substances Act depending on the type of controlled substance allegedly involved and the location of your arrest. These additional charges may include:
Conspiracy to distribute controlled substance
Drug conspiracy charges
Federal drug conspiracy
Illegal sale and trafficking of prescription drugs
Interception of a drug shipment
Interstate transport or drug distribution
Manufacturing or cultivation of controlled substance
Possession or transport with intent to deliver
Transfer of precursor substance for unlawful manufacture
