Austin Cocaine Charges Attorney

Fight Back against Drug Charges

A criminal charge for possession of cocaine is very serious. Texas drug laws enforce some of the most severe penalties in the country: Possession of less than one gram of cocaine can result in a felony conviction. Depending on the circumstances of the case, judges may compound these penalties even further.

If you are faced with charges of cocaine possession, you need the strongest defense possible. With years of experience representing defendants for drug-related crimes, Austin cocaine lawyer Jason Trumpler can help protect you from harsh penalties and minimize potential sentences.

Understanding Cocaine Charges in Texas

Cocaine falls into Penalty Group 1, the most severe penalty category for Texas crimes involving possession of a controlled substance. The severity of the consequences increases according to the amount of cocaine found by law enforcement.

With some of the toughest drug laws in the country, Texas also enforces a variety of enhancements for cocaine possession charges.

Sentences may be enhanced if any of the following apply to your situation:

  • Prior drug convictions
  • Use or possession of a gun
  • Conviction for a crime occurring in a school zone or near a playground
  • Manufacturing or delivery of cocaine

If larger amounts of cocaine are involved or you are accused of trafficking drugs from out of the state or country, you may face both state and federal charges.

At the Law Offices of Jason Trumpler, we take your rights and freedom very seriously. Our first priority is to clear you of drug charges. If this is not possible, then we strive to renegotiate and minimize penalties.

If law enforcement activities are in violation of your constitutional rights, evidence can be excluded and charges dropped. It is important to understand that the State must prove you were in possession of a controlled substance, which means demonstrating that you intentionally had custody, care, and control of cocaine. Law enforcement must obtain evidence from your car or home in the course of a legal search. If not, they are in violation of your constitutional rights and the judge may rule to exclude certain evidence or drop charges.
