Attorney Billy Skinner has integrated extensive legal experience and time spent as a former prosecutor with unyielding work ethic to produce numerous successful case results for clients accused of drug offenses.

What to Expect with Texas Drug Offenses
Drug charges can vary depending on a number of factors, which include the:
- Type of drug allegedly involved
- Amount of the controlled substance
- Prior criminal record of the accused
Controlled substances are categorized into drug schedules, meaning certain drugs considered to be more dangerous carry stiffer penalties. For example, Penalty Group 1 drugs, such as cocaine and heroin, pose the most serious penalties, while Penalty Group 4 drugs, such as less buprenorphine, have the least serious.
