Texas Drug Charge Penalties
A Fort Worth Drug Crimes Attorney Helping You Avoid Prosecution
Sometimes the best solution to a problem is one you may not have even considered, the kind of answer you can only get from a lawyer who truly understands what options may be out there. Convictions for Texas drug charges are serious, and many people assume that if they are accused of a crime, whether a drug crime, DWI or other first time offense, the choices are plea agreement, plead guilty or a trial.
There Are Other Answers
At the Texas law office of David E. Cook, our founding attorney focuses on finding the right solutions for people involved in a range of criminal defense matters. Whether we seek a diversionary alternative to prosecution, deferred adjudication, drug treatment or a program that helps you clear your name, our goal is to help you find real solutions.
A Pathway to Reduced or Dismissed Charges
Not every Texas drug charge leaves open the opportunity for diversionary or alternative programs that avoid serious penalties. While some felony drug crime or DWI charges may have programs that can dramatically reduce jail time and other penalties, it is far less likely that a person accused of possession with intent to deliver will have the same options.
In general, though, if you are a first time offender accused of a misdemeanor or certain felony crimes in the Fort Worth area, then our attorney may be able to help you pursue options such as:
- Conditional Dismissals
- Deferred adjudication
- Rehabilitation and other treatment
- The Felony Alcohol Intervention Programs
- The DIRECT (Drug Court) program
While these programs may be years long and demand substantial effort from the individuals involved, the results can be worth the hard work. It is even possible that completion of these programs can lead to a dismissal of the felony charge and leave you with a clear criminal record.
The First Step Is Yours
Most of the time, the only way to get access to alternatives to trial and conviction is to work with an experienced professional with substantial experience getting results for clients.
