Facing Drug Possession Charges? Contact The San Antonio Defense Attorneys At Daniel & Halstead.
Some of the most common and serious criminal offenses in Texas involve using, possessing and distributing drugs. The fact that these are common charges does not make them any less critical for the individual who has been accused of such crimes.
It is illegal in Texas to possess, transport, possess with intent to distribute or manufacture a controlled substance. Drug-related criminal offenses may be prosecuted in either federal or state court. Both federal and state laws affirm that is illegal to possess or sell controlled substances including methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine. If you have been charged with a crime involving one of these substances in the San Antonio area, contact Daniel & Halstead. The firm’s award-winning lawyers have more than 65 combined years of experience.
Step One: Understand The Charges
When you have been arrested and charged with drug possession, it is essential first to understand the charges you face. The penalties for selling, transporting and manufacturing a controlled substance depend on the type and amount of controlled substance involved and the specific circumstances surrounding the possession, distribution or manufacturing.
To be found guilty of drug possession, the prosecution must prove not only that you were in actual or constructive possession of the drugs, but also that you knew the drugs were in your possession. The firm’s defense lawyers often get cases dismissed or reduced in severity when one or more of these points are hard for the prosecution to prove.
Facing a drug possession charge should not be taken lightly. Should you be charged with illegally possessing any substance that is controlled under federal or Texas law, seek out the help of a defense attorney immediately. The team has successfully defended many clients facing drug-related criminal charges in Bexar, Kerr, Gillespie and Kendall counties.
