Cocaine drug offenses are heavily prosecuted in Fort Worth and Texas. It is listed as a Schedule II drug, meaning that it has a high potential for abuse but can be administered by a doctor for legitimate medical uses. However its primary use is for recreational purposes and it is a high profile drug in our area.
In fact, the DEA Dallas Field Division states:
"The greater Dallas/Fort Worth area serves primarily as a drug distribution and transshipment area. Drug smuggling and transportation are dominated by major Mexican trafficking organizations. These groups are poly-drug organizations smuggling methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana to the Dallas/Fort Worth area for distribution in the Eastern, Southeastern, and Midwestern United States. The Division's central location and proximity to the Mexican Border provide a natural advantage for drug distribution/transshipment throughout the United States."
Because of our geographical location the Fort Worth area sees more than its fair share of drug trafficking. The high level of criminal activity is met by raised elevation of drug crime prosecution and penalization. A Fort Worth drug crime lawyer will normally face a higher level of courtroom than lawyers in other areas of our Nation.
At Alband, Lane & Balderama we have spent our time and many years on both sides of the courtroom. When our clients have been placed under arrest for cocaine related charges we are well familiar with the legal actions that need to be taken immediately to protect their rights and to secure the best possible outcome that their circumstances will allow. Depending upon the amount of cocaine, your past history and whether other criminal factors were a part of this offense the penalty potential can be quite high. Imprisonment terms of 15 years or more are not impossible and the financial fines can be ruinous.
Whether this is your first offense or you have a prior record it is important that you contact a Fort Worth cocaine drug defense attorney rapidly to begin work on your defense.
