for All Your Criminal Defense Needs
The consequences of being arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (POCS), Possession of Marijuana (POM), or Possession of a Dangerous Drug are serious. You can face jail time, loss of driver’s license, inability to obtain financial aid for college, and loss of other government assistance.
Just because you may have been in possession of the drug does not mean the state will be able to obtain a conviction. As with every criminal offense in Texas, the Prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty. Additionally, the evidence against you must have been lawfully obtained. That means that if you were the victim of an unlawful detention, seizure, or arrest the evidence may not be admissible.
It is important to talk to an attorney regarding these offenses because the case law is constantly changing, and your case may involve a suppression issue. A qualified attorney will file the Motion to Suppress or any other necessary motions to fully defend your case. Even if you are familiar with the Criminal Justice system you should consult with an attorney to see if your case has any issues that could result in a dismissal or acquittal. The way in which your case is resolved will also affect your right to an expunction or ability to seal your record. You cannot expunge a Deferred Adjudication.
