Have You Been Arrested for a Drug Crime in Fort Worth?

While many states in the Union are finding it necessary to loosen the prosecution and sentencing of drug crimes, due to budgetary cuts and problems, Texas remains one of the strictest states in terms of drug crime prosecution. As a state with one of the longest foreign borders Texas is an entry point for much of the nation's drug traffic as well.

Our state is also one of the toughest in the prosecution of driving while under the influence of drugs. As a result, drug crimes represent a significant portion of the law activity in the courts and prisons.

Being convicted of a drug crime can result in swift and severe punishment and can leave a mark on your criminal record that affects you adversely long into the future. If you have been charged with a narcotics or drug crime, then it is crucial you hire a knowledgeable attorney who can inform you of your legal rights and provide you with representation in court.

Do You Know Your Rights?

When you are being questioned by the police, you always have the following rights:

  • You have the right to remain silent when being questioned by the police.
  • You have the right against unlawful searches and seizures.
  • If you choose to speak to the police, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
  • If you decide to answer questions, you can stop at any time and ask to for an attorney, and the law requires that all questions cease.
  • You have a right to speak with a lawyer before answering any questions. You also have the right to have your attorney present if you decide to answer any questions.
  • You have the right to be free from cruel and inhumane treatment.
  • You have the right to be informed about what crime or crimes you are being charged with.
  • You have the right to communicate with a friend, a family member, a bondsman, or your attorney by phone after you are brought down to the police station; however, the police have the right to finish booking you before allowing you to use the telephone.
