Drug Possession Charges
San Antonio Drug Crime Attorney
When a person is caught in possession of unlawful controlled substances
like marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, ecstasy or even illegally
obtained prescription drugs, they will likely be charged with possession.
The penalties they could face for this type of charged can vary on factors
like the type of drug, the amount and if the arresting officer or prosecution
enhance the charges to possession with intent to distribute. Other factors
that can increase the severity of the penalties are whether anyone was
injured, if any weapons were involved and if there are prior convictions
in the defendant's history. In any case, the legal repercussions will
be severe for a defendant that winds up being convicted and they could face:
- Community service
- Court order substance abuse treatment or classes
- Misdemeanor or felony charges and conviction on your legal record, which
can be viewed by anyone who conducts a background check for employment,
housing or other future opportunities that arise
If you or someone you know has recently been arrested for possession, you
will need to obtain the services of a knowledgeable and highly skilled
San Antonio criminal defense lawyer. It is crucial that you do not discuss
your legal matter with anyone but your attorney, as in many cases, even
if you believe that what you have to say will declare your innocence,
it can wind up jeopardizing the integrity of your defense. You have the
right to remain silent and you should absolutely exercise it.
