Facing Drug Offenses for Youth Offenders

For youth offenders in Dallas, drug-related offenses can be particularly damaging to their future. Aside from the possibility of carrying a criminal record into adulthood, youth offenders are likely to face exceeding difficulty getting into a college, securing a job, and/or finding a first apartment to live in. As such, it is critical that youth offenders secure experienced legal representation as early on in the legal process as possible. The Dallas lawyers at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter will challenge each and every aspect of your child’s arrest in an effort to either reduce or all together eliminate the charges leveled against them.

Common Drug Offenses

While teen drug use has been declining in the United States overall, recreational experimentation with marijuana, cocaine, prescription drugs, steroids, and ecstasy is still quite prevalent. Possible drug-related charges your child might be facing include:

  • Narcotics possession
  • Narcotic drug cultivation or manufacturing
  • Transportation, distribution, or selling of drugs (particularly in school zones)
  • Drug-related DUIs

The penalties for convictions of these offenses can be severe, even for underage individuals; our Dallas legal team will do everything they can to protect your child’s future.
