Haltom City Criminal Attorney – Possession of Marijuana
As a criminal defense lawyer, I have been successfully defending those accused of all types of drug crimes since I left the Tarrant County DA’s office in 2000. With more than twenty years of experience as a criminal lawyer, possession of marijuana is one offense I spend a lot of time helping clients deal with. The consequences of being arrested for possession of marijuana are often far more severe than people realize.
Although marijuana laws are beginning to lessen all around the country, Texas continues to keep harsh punishments for marijuana possession. If you are convicted of possession of marijuana, this charge could follow you around for the rest of your life. Because possession of marijuana charges in Texas are so harsh, my job as a criminal defense lawyer is to not only to keep you out of jail, but to help protect your future.
I am dedicated to my clients . As a defense lawyer, I cannot promise specific results. I do promise I will do everything possible to reach the best possible result in your case.
Note to Parents:
In Texas, it is still illegal to possess marijuana. Through my years of experience defending hundreds of kids caught with marijuana, I absolutely believe it is even more common than drinking alcohol under age. However, there is a big difference between these two offenses. Possession of Alcohol by a minor (MIP) is a Class C misdemeanor with a maximum fine of $500. Even with a probation for MIP, a lawyer can come back later and have the arrest expunged from the child’s record. With a Possession of Marijuana, the range of punishment for the lowest level of offense is up to 180 days in jail and a $2000 fine. But the child really needs to have the case dismissed or reduced to a class C Misdemeanor to afford him the ability to have the arrest expunged later. Although a jail sentence is highly unlikely for someone charged with a first offense possession of marijuana case, it is the long-term effects on their future that most need to be protected.
If your child does get arrested for Possession of Marijuana, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the nature of these cases. I will work hard to prevent these charges from following your child into adulthood.
