Anyone facing a drug charge in Illinois or Texas has the right to qualified representation, regardless of how minor or severe the offense is. If you are caught in possession of an illegal drug or substance, there are numerous potential felony and misdemeanor charges you could face. To start, you could be charged with Possession with Intent to Deliver, which is a felony in both states. As a rule of thumb, the more serious the drug, and the greater the weight of the controlled substance, the more severe the punishment will be. Six of the most heavily-trafficked drugs in the United States are:

  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Crack cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Oxycodone

To learn more about your rights following a drug arrest in Illinois or Texas, contact experienced drug offense defense attorney Moises Briseño and Associates at Toro Law immediately to schedule a consultation to discuss your case. Our bilingual lawyers understand that each case is unique, and we are here to help you, free of judgement. There are many different factors to consider when a drug crime has been committed, including what type of drug is involved, how much of the drug was found in your possession, and what your intention was. For example, being found with a small amount of marijuana for your personal use is a much less serious crime than being arrested with several ounces of cocaine that you intended to sell to others.
