Having spent five years as an assistant district attorney, Christy Harris understands the mistakes arresting officers can make and can fully investigate the circumstances that led to the drug charges against you.

Drug Dealing Charges

The prosecutor may seek additional offenses and criminal charges against you under the Texas Controlled Substances Act, depending on the type of controlled substance allegedly involved and the location of your arrest. Additional charges may include:

  • Conspiracy to distribute controlled substance
  • Drug conspiracy charges
  • Federal drug conspiracy
  • Illegal sale and trafficking of prescription drugs
  • Interception of a drug shipment
  • Interstate transport or drug distribution
  • Manufacturing or cultivation of controlled substance
  • Possession or transport with intent to deliver
  • Prescription fraud
  • Transfer of precursor substance for unlawful manufacture

Defenses to Drug Charges

  • Illegal search or arrest warrants
  • Illegal detention
  • Lack of consent to search
  • Lack of probable cause
  • Manufactured evidence
  • Racial discrimination or profiling
  • Tainted evidence
