Possession of cocaine, even a small amount, can still result in arrest
and criminal charges. Penalties for conviction are directly related to
the amount of the cocaine in your possession. Minor quantities may result
in probation and a small fine. Much larger amounts can result in extended
prison time and extremely high fines.
Unfortunately, with a cocaine charge, the cards are stacked against you.
The criminal justice system can be extremely harsh on those who do not
have a qualified attorney aggressively defending them.

Options In Texas Drug Court
In order to help reduce drug use and
drug-related crime in the area, the government established the El Paso drug court program.
This program is aimed at treating drug addicts and curbing associated
criminal behavior. Drug court is an alternative to jail (because in prison
the offender may pay his or her debt to society, but often does not receive
the needed help to address the underlying addiction). While drug court
is not a guaranteed outcome to your cocaine charges, with the right legal
representation, you may be given the opportunity to avoid jail and get
clean. Contact our firm to learn more about your options.
