Understanding Texas Drug Possession Laws
Controlled substances are drugs or chemicals whose possession, use, or manufacture is regulated by the government. Depending on how much of the drug is discovered in your possession, your sentence from a drug charge can range anywhere from six months to a lifetime.
Texas' regulations are among the most stringent in the country: a conviction for less than a gram of cocaine can land you in jail, saddle you with substantial fines, and leave a permanent felony on your record.
Even without jail time, a conviction can have a severe impact on your daily life. Monetary penalties can strain your budget and relationships with your family. Felony charges can undermine your educational and career goals, as well as valuable civil rights and privileges.

Finds Creative Solutions
Depending on the number of people involved and other specifics of the case, our attorney may be able to substitute jail time for treatment or counseling.
One possible pathway is the use of deferred adjudication. Deferred adjudication is a special form of probation that allows a defendant to accept accountability for their drug possession by serving probation instead of receiving a conviction and subsequent fines and jail time.
