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 charge can depend on factors like the type of drug, the amount, and if the arresting officer or prosecution decides to 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:

  • Jail or Prison time
  • Probation
  • Fines
  • Community service
  • Court order substance abuse treatment or classes
  • Misdemeanor or felony charges and convictions 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 drug 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. In many cases, even if you believe that what you have to say may establish your innocence, it can wind up jeopardizing the integrity of your defense.
