Possession of Drug
Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with a Drug crime?
If you are facing drug charges in Houston, you should know that you are not alone. Drug charges are scary, but with the help of an aggressive, experienced defense attorney, you could potentially get your case dismissed in certain situations. Below is a guide to help you understand the different types of drug charges in Texas and what the possible fines and penalties are for a conviction.
Types of Drug Charges & Crimes in Texas
Drug charges carry some of the heaviest fines and penalties in Texas. Being charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell or Deliver is a serious matter. Under Texas law, drug crimes are defined as an offense that involves the possession, sale, use, manufacturing or growing of any controlled substance/illegal narcotic. If you have been charged or arrested for conspiring to sell, possess, or manufacture drugs you need an experienced drug crimes lawyer.
Defenses to a Drug Possession Charge
If you have been accused of illegally possessing drugs, the penalties can depend on the amount of the drug said to be in your possession, the type of drug, any prior criminal history, what you were doing when arrested, and even where you were found. The bottom line is, whatever penalties you face, they are severe, and you need serious defense.
To fight your charges and potential penalties, a skilled attorney can:
- Exclude illegally obtained evidence from the case
- Attack a witness’s credibility
- Point out improper police procedures
- Demonstrate that a court error was committed
- Seek dismissal based on lost or tampered evidence
These defenses can be utilized to break apart the state’s case against an accused drug possessor. When a highly skilled and seasoned criminal defense attorney employs these techniques, you may be able to avoid prison and even a conviction.
Convictions can also be overturned on appeal by using these methods, and might even result in a civil rights violation lawsuit against those officers or agencies who were negligent or malicious in the prosecution of your charges. As an experienced Houston criminal defense attorney, I can analyze your particular case and determine which aggressive defense strategy to employ to successfully challenge your charge.
