Texas' drug possession laws are described in the Health and Safety Code, Chapter 481. These laws can be complex and the severity of the charge can depend on numerous factors. These include the kind of substance involved, the quantity of the substance, and the criminal history of the accused. In terms of defending against these accusations, the first thing Attorney Jason Trumpler looks for is whether there was an issue in how the alleged illegal substance was found. 

Search and Seizure Issues

Attorney Jason Trumpler is a former prosecutor with extensive training and experience in law of search and seizure.  The first prong in evaluating a drug case is determining whether the law enforcement official had a right to contact you, and then if he or she did, if he or she had a valid warrant or developed probable cause to search you.  

Knowingly Possess

The other major defense to these types of charges is whether you knowingly possessed the alleged drug.  This is generally based on circumstances on where the alleged controlled substance was found relative to the party the state is claiming "possessed" it.  

Lab Issues

The final defense to these types of case is lab issues.  On occasion, the lab makes mistakes when testing drugs for both quality and quantity.  Attorney Jason Trumpler has received training on how to test drugs in a laboratory setting so he is aware of the issues that can arise when testing drugs and knows how to look for these complex laboratory issues.  

Defending against these allegations takes incisive insight of our Constitutional rights—especially those against unlawful search and seizure. Attorney Jason Trumpler knows how to navigate these cases and secure the best possible outcome on behalf of our clients.
