Houston Drug Conspiracy Lawyer
Texas Drug Crime Attorney Serving Houston & Harris County
Drug conspiracy charges, defined under 21 U.S. Code § 846, are sometimes used by law enforcement to arrest as many people as possible who may have roles in a drug crime or suspected criminal organization. Threatening minor players or alleged associates with serious federal drug charges may lead to the collection of information or evidence regarding highly valuable suspects.
If you have been overcharged with drug conspiracy, you need an experienced attorney to protect your rights. Attorney Jed Silverman has been fighting state and federal prosecutors in drug cases for more than 10 years.

State & Federal Criminal Defense for Drug Conspiracy
Conspiring to commit a state or federal drug crime is against the law. You can face conspiracy charges even if the crime was not committed. Additionally, even if you did not commit the crime or your role was limited to conspiracy, it is possible for you to be charged with the actual crime in addition to any offense that arises from the offense.
Sentences for Drug Conspiracy Charges
If you are convicted of drug conspiracy, you may face the same penalties as the parties that committed the crime, in addition to the penalties for the drug conspiracy charge. Depending on the details of your case, the penalties may include:
- Mandatory prison sentence
- Significant fines
