Bryan, TX Drug Crime Defense Lawyer

Texas has some of the harshest laws against drug crimes in the country. While other states have legalized the use of medical and recreational marijuana, even a small amount of this substance can bring criminal charges against you in Texas. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your drug offense, you could be facing jail or prison time along with hefty fines. When it is all over, your conviction will leave you with a permanent criminal record that can make it difficult to secure future jobs, housing, educational opportunities, or professional licenses.

That is what you will find and more at The Law Office of Jay Granberry. At our firm, you can work with a Board Certified Legal Specialist as granted by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Attorney Jay Granberry also brings to the table experience as a former prosecutor along with extensive trial experience. This combination of outstanding qualifications puts your case in the hands of a proven expert.
Texas Drug Crimes
Aside from marijuana, Texas has established four classes of controlled substances, which each have their own set of penalties. These include illegal street drugs such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and fentanyl; substances considered drugs such as THC oil and others; and even unauthorized prescription drugs such as opiates.
In any drug case, how you are charged will depend on:
- The type of drug involved, as well as the quantity
- The nature of the offense
- How the drugs were stored or hidden
- Whether you have previous convictions
Drug charges can include possession, sales or distribution, cultivation, manufacture, and trafficking. Drug charges can range from misdemeanors carrying penalties of up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000 all the way to a first-degree felony punishable by life in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000.

In the face of such severe penalties, you need a strong advocate who can fight for the best possible case outcome.
