Defenses to Drug Trafficking
Under the Texas Controlled Substances Act, you could be found guilty of a criminal charge if you are found transporting a controlled substance and the evidence is convincing enough to merit the charge. Our drug crime attorneys can review your case for you to determine what defense strategy can work for your case.
Here are some of the possible defenses to drug trafficking charges:
- Lack of knowledge
- Facts were misconstrued or misinterpreted
- Insufficient evidence to support the charge
- Duress—someone forced you or threatened harm or death if you did not carry the drugs
The penalties for drug trafficking can be tremendous; for example, carrying 100 to 999 grams of heroin may be charged as a federal crime, which means that you not only face penalties from the state but the federal government as well. These penalties can include thousands of dollars in fines and five years or more in federal prison.
