Drug Trafficking Attorney in Conroe, TX

Drug Trafficking Cases

A Conroe criminal defense attorney should be contacted at once if you have been charged with drug trafficking. The crime of drug trafficking involves the manufacturing, importing, transporting and distribution of illegal narcotics such as methamphetamines, heroin, LSD, ecstasy and cocaine. It typically involves large quantities of drugs, and can be charged as both a state and federal crime.

The penalties for trafficking can be extremely severe and result in many years in prison depending on the scale of the operation. Federal cases are often investigated for many months by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) before there is an indictment. You will need the skills of an experienced and proven criminal defense lawyer when fighting trafficking charges to help ensure the best possible results in your case.

Trafficking Penalties

The penalties for drug trafficking in Texas may vary based on the offense but may include:

  • 180 days to 2 years in state jail and/or up to $10,000 in fines for a state jail felony
  • 15-99 years in prison and/or up to $250,000 in fines for the heaviest first degree felony

Conroe Drug Trafficking Defense Lawyer

Attorney Doug Atkinson is a highly qualified criminal defense attorney with courtroom experience in many different types of drug crime cases, including trafficking. Over the years he has developed a reputation for winning difficult cases.

He will look for weaknesses in the prosecution's case that can be used to minimize charges, such as mistakes made in police procedures that are a violation of your constitutional rights.

There are many factors in a trafficking case that will be taken into consideration at the trial and during sentencing if there is a conviction in the case, including:

  • The defendant's prior criminal history
  • A prior criminal history involving drug crimes
  • The evidence that was collected such as equipment, supplies, large amounts of cash
  • The type of drug involved
  • The quantity of the drug involved
  • If trafficking activities occurred near a school
  • If minors were involved in the operation
  • If deadly weapons were found

Attorney Atkinson will vigorously attack the prosecution's case and take whatever legal actions are necessary to help prevent a guilty verdict.
