Dallas Drug Importation Defense Attorneys

Top-Rated Firm Serving Fort Worth, Denton, Austin, Waco & Allen

The importation of controlled substances into Texas is a serious accusation which calls for the services of a competent and dedicated defense attorney. Controlled substances include such drugs and narcotics as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, methamphetamine, and other street drugs as well as prescription medicines like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and more. These substances are placed in categories under the Texas Controlled Substances Act based on how addictive and dangerous they are. Importing these substances into Texas is generally charged as a felony for which you could face jail or prison time.

Because Texas is a border state, illegal drug importation is aggressively prosecuted so as to deter and limit drug trafficking into the state. You may be facing serious consequences without the help of a criminal defense attorney who knows how to fight back effectively. Deandra Grant Law offers nationally-recognized and highly-rated legal service in criminal defense. Founding attorney, Deandra Grant, has been selected to Super Lawyers® lists, has earned the highest possible peer-reviewed rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, and is a Top 100 Trial Lawyer as named by the National Trial Lawyers Association. That is the level of legal ability you want on your side when facing serious felony charges.

Drug Importation Charges in Texas

Drug importation is associated with drug trafficking because importation into Texas generally means large quantities of drugs meant for sale or distribution. Importation with the intent to deliver to others violates Section 481.101 of the Texas Health and Safety Code which categorizes controlled substances into four different penalty groups for the purposes of punishment. Penalty Group 1 includes heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and opiates while Penalty Group 1A includes LSD. These are considered the most dangerous and, therefore, most heavily punished substances. Penalty Group 2 includes hallucinogens and depressants while Penalty Group 3 includes stimulants. Penalty Group 4 contains narcotics mixed with nonnarcotic medical substances.

Penalties range from state jail terms and fines of up to $100,000 to life terms in a Texas prison with fines of up to $250,000. When facing an illegal drug importation charge, your freedom may be at stake while your future may become limited due to a permanent criminal record as a drug felon.
