Understanding The Federal Court Process

Most drug charges violate both state and federal laws, but you will typically only be prosecuted under one or the other. A federal prosecutor decides whether your case is tried in federal court. If your case proceeds to a federal court, an indictment normally follows your arrest. Once they obtain an indictment, your drug charges — whether they are for possession or drug trafficking — are officially tried in court.

The system can be confusing, and varies depending upon the particulars of your case. Our attorneys can guide you through each step of the process, ensuring that you understand what will happen. Additionally, we work closely with you to learn the intricacies of your case and develop a strong defense to protect your future.

Exploring The Possibility Of Drug Court And Rehabilitation

If you are charged with a federal drug crime, you may be steered into Texas' drug court system. Instead of sending drug users to prison, drug courts offer the opportunity of rehabilitation. As a part of this process, you would be closely supervised, undergo regular drug testing and attend treatment appointments. We can evaluate your situation to determine whether you may qualify for drug court, and help you pursue any course of action that will reduce the severity of your penalties.
