Houston Drug Sales Attorney
Charged with drug sales in Fort Bend County?
Under state law, delivering illegal drugs by any means is punished similarly
to selling drugs, or trafficking. As long as there is intent to deliver,
whether money exchanges hands or not, you can be charged with the sale
or delivery of drugs. At the Law Office of Steven Rocket Rosen, I have
extensive experience in defending individuals who have been charged with
drug sales, as well as other serious misdemeanor and felony
drug crimes. Texas is well known for having very strict drug crime laws, due to the
state bordering on Mexico. If you have been charged with drug sales, you
need a skilled and aggressive
criminal defense lawyer on your side to protect your rights and to help you to pursue a
The amount of drugs that is alleged to have been found in your possession,
as well as the type of drug, will greatly influence the level of the charges.
If you are in possession of a very small amount, you might not be charged
with intent to deliver or sell. You may have a relatively small amount
of a controlled substance, but if law enforcement also finds other items,
such as scales, packaging materials, etc., it is very likely that this
would be a strong indication of intent to distribute. Even a very small
amount of certain controlled substances can result in a felony drug sales charge.
There is a wide range of penalties connected with drug sales convictions.
The length of time and whether incarceration is in jail or prison will
depend on the drug and the quantity. It is safe to say that the majority
of penalties will include some or all of the following: jail or prison
time, fines, probation, community service, suspension of your driver's
license and drug treatment programs that must be completed.
