Serious Federal Charges Require A Serious Defense

The state of Texas can charge you with a criminal drug offense, but so can the federal government. Federal drug charges can be filed if:

  • The drug crime occurred on federal property
  • Involved a certain quantity of drugs
  • Involved the transportation of a controlled substance across state lines, including the use of mail
  • Importing drugs from outside of the United States
  • The drug crime was part of an ongoing investigation by a federal agency such as the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
  • Included the involvement of a federal informant
  • Involved other crimes like the possession of a firearm or money laundering of drug money
  • Was part of a criminal enterprise or organized crime

If the federal government is involved, you are then facing potentially serious consequences. Moreover, federal drug laws and sentencing guidelines are complex. You need a skilled federal criminal defense lawyer who knows and understands the intricacies of federal issues.

You need a criminal defense attorney who understands the specific charges, statutes and the different federal courtroom rules. You need an attorney who understands how a federal investigation is conducted, as this will help you prepare the best strategic criminal defense. Our attorney Sergio Sanchez was a former prosecutor and assistant district attorney working alongside the District Attorney. He will know how to fight your federal drug charge and advise the best legal strategy for your case.
