Attorney Nicole DeBorde defends clients charged with a range of state and federal drug crimes involving cocaine and meth:
Both cocaine and meth are classified as Schedule 1 drugs in Texas. The penalties assigned Schedule 1 drug convictions are the most severe, but also dependent on the amount of drug involved. An individual convicted of a drug crime under this classification could face life in prison and fines of up to $100,000.
An individual may be facing heightened penalties if he or she is found to have precursors in conjunction with drug possession. Baggies, scales, precursor chemicals, and other materials can push a simple possession charge to a manufacturing or trafficking charge. In federal cases, crack cocaine offenses are punished much more harshly than those involving powder cocaine.
