Houston Cocaine Possession Lawyer

Texas has one of the harshest stances in the United States regarding drug laws and penalties and views cocaine as one of the more dangerous controlled substances that can be abused by a citizen. Because of this, possessing any amount of cocaine may be severely punished. Furthermore, possession of larger amounts may result in prosecutors pushing for charges of intent to sell or trafficking, resulting in even more severe repercussions.

If you are facing charges of cocaine possession, it is essential that you seek skilled legal representation immediately in order to protect your rights and interests. To learn more about your legal options and what steps we may be able to take to begin your defense, call our experienced Houston cocaine possession attorneys at Johnson, Johnson, & Baer, P.C., today.

Penalties for Possession

The exact penalties that are placed upon people convicted of cocaine possession vary in direct relation to the amount of cocaine which is found on a person. Depending on the amount of substance found, the following are the maximum penalties you could face if convicted:

  • Less than 1 gram: Up to 2 years in prison, $10,000 fine
  • 1- 3.99 grams: Up to 10 years in prison, $10,000 fine
  • 4 – 199 grams: Up to 20 years in prison, $10,000 fine
  • 200 – 399 grams: Up to 99 years in prison, $10,000 fine
  • 400+ grams: Up to 99 years in prison, $100,000 fine

Without adequate representation, you likely face a greater likelihood of conviction and receiving a much stricter sentence than you may have otherwise.
