17 foreigners indicted for drug charges in the United States

Being accused of drug distribution is a very serious charge. Interestingly, an individual does not even have to be a resident of Texas or even the United States to be accused of drug distribution. Sometimes, people living in other countries who have never set foot on American soil are indicted for federal drug charges.

Man convicted of white collar crime fights to reduce sentence

Allegations of so-called white collar crime are different from other kinds of criminal accusations. White collar crime charges in Texas require a different kind of defense. For one thing, it is rare that prosecutors can find a 'smoking gun' that will connect an individual, irrefutably to the alleged wrongdoing. Secondly, prosecutors will sometimes violate the rights of the accused while gathering evidence and they can be held accountable for this kind of violation. When an individual is wrongly convicted of a white collar crime, or wrongly sentenced, he or she can appeal that conviction through more litigation.

Traffic stop yields drug seizures and drug charges for occupants

Whenever drugs are found in a 'traffic stop' the facts surrounding the stop and any other information that the authorities had on the occupants prior to the stop should be sought and determined. Sometimes the police may use the traffic stop as a pretextual excuse for searching existing drug suspects and bringing drug charges. In Texas and generally throughout the country, there must first be some reasonable basis on which to make a traffic stop in the first place.

Texas man falsely accused of drug charges sues Ford for damages

On the border between Texas and Mexico, authorities are on the constant lookout for drug traffickers. The majority of Texas residents who cross back and forth over the border from Mexico to the United States do not carry drugs with them, but some do and when authorities catch them the penalties can be stiff. However, it is not unheard of for an individual to be accused of drug charges after he or she unwittingly transported narcotics across the border – for example, if someone unknown to them secretly plants a controlled substance inside his or her vehicle.
