Punishment for Texas drug crimes
If you plead guilty or are found guilty of a drug offense, your punishment will depend upon the quantity of drugs involved and the drug’s classification under the Texas Controlled Substances Act. The law also allows Texas courts to enhance punishments if you are found guilty of possessing a controlled substance in a “drug free zone” such as a school.
In addition to costly fines and possible jail time for a drug conviction, you may also face:
- Difficulty finding future employment
- Suspension of your driver’s license
- Denial of student loans or any other federally insured loan program
- Difficulty in renting an apartment
- Your family’s and friends’ disappointment in you
For adults and young people, criminal defense attorney Stephanie Hudson builds strong cases, crafting the best defense to avoid conviction and give you that second chance. She also pursues expunging your criminal record whenever possible.
Stephanie Hudson also advocates for rehabilitation when it is in your best interests. If appropriate, she works to obtain alternative sentencing outcomes involving drug treatment, deferred prosecution or probation. However, some people are ineligible for these programs because of the particular drug offense or their prior criminal records.
