Drug Crimes

Being charged with a drug crime is a serious matter. A single conviction can cost you your job, property, assets, and most importantly of all – your freedom. A wide range of activities fall under drug crimes including possession, possession with intent to distribute, illegal drug manufacturing, and even drug conspiracy.

Let skilled drug offense attorney John. R. Teakell help.


John Teakell is well-versed in Texas and Federal procedure. He knows the rules for collecting evidence and how easily those can sometimes be broken in a law enforcement officer’s eagerness to close a case. He will carefully examine all witness testimony to expose ulterior motives that might lead to a false conviction.

Waiting to get help is a mistake.


These crimes tend to have long periods for investigation and evidence collection resulting in higher than usual conviction rates. If you suspect you are being investigated or have already been charged with a drug crime, don’t wait. The longer you wait, the more time it gives prosecutors to build their case, lose or mishandle evidence that could help you, or for witnesses to forget details that might exonerate you. Call today and speak with John Teakell directly about your case.

Your freedom is at stake.


Drug crimes frequently result in heavy sentences. These penalties are worse if the crime occurred near a church or school, or if it is connected in any way to a white collar crime such as fraud or embezzlement. If the drugs passed state lines, took place on federal property, or if the alleged crime involves an undercover federal agent, the federal government can get involved. You could be facing a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in federal prison if they do.

Representing you inside and outside the court room.


The law office of John R. Teakell will not only stand beside you in the court room during each stage of your case, but will help you outside of the court room by preparing the evidence you need to refute the government’s claims against you.

Being charged with distribution of an illegal substance guarantees you will spend time in jail and pay a hefty financial fine.

These are usually felony charges where penalties can be as little as 180 days in prison and up to $100,000 in fines or as high as a life sentence and a $250,000 fine.


    Posession with intent
    Possession of drugs is a serious enough crime on its own, but if the courts believe that there was an intention to sell those drugs or to give them out to others, the penalties and fines are even higher than they normally might be.

    The determination of intent is based on how the drug was stored, whether and how much money was found with the drug, the amount of narcotics found at the scene, as well as whether there were products that are involved in distribution present. Additional factors include any past drug charges and the types of drugs that were found such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines and marijuana.

    The State of Texas takes these things very seriously, and so should you. If you suspect you are under investigation, or if you are facing charges already, you need to call the law offices of attorney John R. Teakell for help.

  • Prescription fraud is illegally obtaining prescription drugs for personal use or profit. Drug theft and burglary of prescription medications, illegally operated pharmacies and the illegal importation or distribution of drugs not authorized to be sold in the United States are just a few examples of what prescription fraud can involve. They can also be brought against someone who writes or presents a fake prescription for a drug.


    A recent example of prescription fraud is the Dallas doctor and Arlington physician who were charged of operating a pill mill scam. Pill Mill charges are usually brought against doctors or other health care workers who are believed to be writing prescriptions for medications when there is no medical need present. If the fraud is a more complex case, such as an ongoing scheme of obtaining prescription drugs or a large volume of prescriptions, it might become a federal court case and could involve conspiracy charges in addition to the charges of fraud.

    If you are charged with or suspect you are being investigated for prescription fraud, you need to act right away to secure your future and your freedom. Call for a free consultation with attorney John R. Teakell. He has the experience and the skills to help protect your rights and defend your future.
