Intent To Distribute


Texas law enforcement is cracking down on the spread of illegal drugs in our community, and anyone who is arrested for the crime of drug distribution will be confronted with aggressive prosecution. The Texas Code describes the specific penalties available to the court in punishing both distribution and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

For certain types of drugs , such as heroin, ecstasy, marijuana, cocaine, Ritalin, and crystal meth, the penalty for distribution is 5 years or more in prison and a large fine. You will also have a criminal record that can make it difficult to pass a background check for employment in the future, seriously limiting your opportunities.


There are several effective criminal defense strategies that may come into play during your case. Your Texas criminal defense attorney can examine the circumstances of the investigation against you and the arrest to determine if your constitutional rights against unreasonable search and seizure were violated.

If the arresting officer did not have probable cause or a search warrant, as is common in arrests for drug offenses, your Fifth Amendment rights may lead to the case being dropped. It may also be possible to prove your innocence, through a lack of evidence against you or other factors. After an in depth consultation, your Texas drug crime attorney will help you find the best approach for fighting the charges.

When you have been charged with distribution of drugs, the most important thing you can do is to speak with a Texas criminal defense attorney. T.

A friend of mine recommended Mr. Lewis. I met with him immediately and he carefully explained what would take place and what to expect in great detail. He reassured me that he could help, and although I had my doubts, he took action quickly and aggressively. Eventually, my charges dropped. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone I know.
