Sierra Blanca Drug Checkpoint Cases More Experience. Better Outcomes. 

Sierra Blanca Drug Checkpoint

Sierra Blanca is home to one of many Texas checkpoints patrolled by the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Its primary function is to catch illegal immigrants. Its secondary purpose is to check for illegal drug possession or smuggling.

For those who have been stopped, searched and charged with a drug crime at the Sierra Blanca checkpoint, life can get complicated very quickly. Depending on the type and amount of narcotics you were found in possession of, you may face misdemeanor or felony charges at either the state or federal level. At this time, nothing is more important than your future and your freedom. Don’t risk it by defending yourself or hiring a less-than-qualified attorney.

An Aggressive Defense for Drug Charges at Checkpoints and Bridges

At the Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz, we have been protecting the rights of clients since 1998 and have helped countless clients secure dismissals for their drug charges. The people of the El Paso community know and trust our services, and they have chosen attorney Ortiz as “The Best Lawyer to Get You Out of Trouble” from 2007 to 2012, as reported by El Paso’s What’s Up Entertainment Weekly.

The Department of Homeland Security set up the checkpoint on Interstate 10 in Sierra Blanca because of its proximity to the Mexican border. ICE officials stop and inspect thousands of vehicles there every day. Although these border patrol agents have the right to search you and your car, they are not unlimited in their power. They must follow strict inspection laws and protocols.

So if you were stopped, searched and charged with a drug crime in Sierra Blanca, it’s important to remember that you also have rights. Our attorneys can help you understand if those rights were violated. Even if the agents followed the proper procedure in your arrest, our attorneys can still help you fight for a dismissal or reduced charges based on legal technicalities and holes in the state’s case against you.
