A Law Firm That Gets Results

Devoted to Family Law and Criminal Defense Throughout the Houston Area

Protecting Your Rights, Preserving Your Freedom

Possession with intent to deliver (PWID) is the most likely charge you face if you have been arrested on possession charges and authorities believe that you intended to distribute or sell controlled substances to another party. In some cases, this can be a difficult charge to prove, but if you had a large amount of cash, a weighing scale or drugs separated into separate bags or containers, each of these can be strong evidence against you.

Texas courts do not go easy on drug crime offenders. Heavy penalties ranging from a state jail felony to life in prison await drug offenders. Depending on the type of drug (penalty group) and quantity found in one’s possession, a minimum sentence for a distribution or trafficking conviction can range from 180 days to two years in state jail for state jail offenses, accompanied by no more than a $10,000 fine and up to life in prison and a fine of no more than $10,000 for first-degree felonies. Conviction on a first-degree felony charge in a trafficking case carries a sentence of between 15 years and life in prison.

You Need Aggressive, Determined Defense

At Scott M. Brown & Associates in Pearland, our attorneys handle drug distribution defense cases throughout the Greater Houston area. Our law firm defends drug distribution/trafficking/PWID cases involving quantities ranging from less than a gram to more than 400 grams or, in the case of marijuana, more than 2,000 pounds. If you have been convicted in the past, that will be a factor in your case. If you are arrested in the vicinity of a school zone or playground or selling to minors, that will be a factor in your case.

Our experienced, trial-tested lawyers are familiar with the nuanced defense required in cases involving marijuana, heroin, krokodil, methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, PCP, bath salts, Vicodin, Valium, Ritalin, Xanax, hydrocodone, various other prescription drugs and other controlled substances. Depending on the category of drug, as defined by the Texas controlled substance schedule, the consequences you face will vary, but your need for professional defense representation will not change.

Every drug charge in Texas carries heavy consequences, but our firm can defend you and mitigate those consequences to the fullest extent possible. We will protect your constitutional rights and challenge the evidence law enforcement gathers at every opportunity.
