Federal Drug Crimes

Experienced San Antonio Drug Possession Lawyer Fights Drug Crime Charges

Seek my assistance to protect your reputation from these charges

Being charged with a federal drug crime may seem like the end of your future, but you can fight the charges with the assistance of a skilled attorney. Through my firm Kevin L. Collins, P.C. I have more than 27 years of experience representing people charged with drug crimes. Having been a prosecutor, I understand the tactics that the state will use against you and how we can successfully fight them. Allow me to aggressively advocate for you for reduced penalties or to secure a case dismissal.

Classifying and fighting federal drug crime charges in Texas

Not all drug crimes are federal crimes ― some are misdemeanors. What determines whether a drug crime is a felony or misdemeanor is the amount and type of drug. A small amount of marijuana may be classified as misdemeanor possession, but a huge amount could result in felony trafficking or dealing charges. Manufacturing illegal drugs is also a felony offense.

The most effective tactics for fighting these charges are:

  • Finding proof of an illegal search or seizure: Law enforcement officers may only search your home or property and seize your possessions with your spoken or written consent or a valid warrant. Without these permissions, any evidence collected is not admissible in court. Never grant officers consent to search your home, as doing so could forfeit a significant amount of leverage that you have in your case.
  • Analyzing warrant validity: Warrants issued to officers must come from the proper legal authorities and have all of the necessary notarization. If an officer arrives at your door and claims to have a warrant, ask to see the warrant before consenting to a search. Do not let yourself be bullied into accepting a search that the officer does not have a right to perform.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency works with local and state law enforcement officials to investigate federal drug crimes and pursue convictions. Working with a San Antonio criminal defense lawyer can help you avoid drug crime penalties such as prison time, lengthy and harsh probation periods, major fines and more.
