Charged With Trafficking, Importation or Smuggling?
Drug trafficking charges are sometimes brought against people who have no intention of trafficking. Simply possessing certain amounts of controlled substances can lead to trafficking charges, even if it is only for an individual's personal use.
If you have been charged with drug trafficking, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. At the Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we represent people charged with trafficking, whether it is a first offense or a subsequent offense. We examine the evidence for admissibility and argue for reduced or dismissed charges, when possible. For a free consultation with a Houston drug trafficking lawyer, please call (713) 226-8800 or contact us online.
A Federal Offense With Serious Penalties
People who are arrested for possessing a large amount of marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin, ecstasy/MDMA, cocaine or as few as 15-20 pills of a prescription drug such as Xanax or hydrocodone may be charged with drug trafficking. The amount and type of drug you are charged with trafficking is a factor in the terms of your sentence if you are convicted. A minimum sentence for a first offense may include at least five years in prison, fines and probation.
Because drug trafficking is covered by state and federal laws, you need a lawyer with federal criminal defense experience. Attorney Silverman has significant experience in state and federal courts throughout Texas. He can defend you against all drug crime charges and take your case to trial if that is in your best interests.
