I Am In Your Corner To Fight Back Against Your Drug Crime Charges
If you or someone you care about faces charges related to a drug crime, you need a skilled and zealous criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. The reason is simple: you could lose your freedom. However, a criminal charge does not make you guilty. You have the right to speak and be heard by law enforcement and the prosecution.
Let me help you defend yourself and give you an opportunity to reach different results, according to the specific circumstances of your case. I am attorney Frederick D. Kelly, and I am in your corner to guide you and represent you in every stage of your legal process.
Helping You Understand Your Rights, Charges And Options
The first thing to consider is that Texas has some of the most stringent penalties for drug crimes. Your defense depends on factors such as the type of drug and quantity involved, possession of drug paraphernalia, concealment and storage, and history of drug-related convictions. For example:
- A first-time charge could lead to prison time (up to two years) and a potential $10,000 fine.
- Possession of 400 grams or more of controlled substances like opioids, cocaine or LSD could lead to life imprisonment and $50,000 fines.
- Possession of marijuana could mean jail time or prison time. The latter applies if an individual has more than two ounces of marijuana. Under certain circumstances, law enforcement could drop the charges after you complete a treatment program.
As I take your case at The Kelly Law Firm, I will listen and investigate the facts and circumstances that led to your charges and explain the potential scenarios you may face. The process can be intimidating, long and complex, but you have a lawyer with over 30 years of experience in criminal cases to look after you.
