Potential Sentences for Drug Possession in Carrollton, TX
The drug landscape is as expansive as ever, and if you have been arrested for possession of a drug or multiple drugs, we want to help you wage a strong defense. We can represent you if you have been accused of possession of a substance, such as:
- Synthetic marijuana
These are just some of the many drugs for which clients may face drug possession charges. If the substance you or a loved one has been charged with possessing is not listed, we still want to hear your case and help you achieve the most favorable outcome for your future.
If you are not able to levy a strong case for why you are innocent or should be granted leniency, stiff charges could await you. TX § 481.001 (Texas Controlled Substances Act) remain strict with respect to drug possession, and if you are found to be guilty of possession of a controlled substance (drugs), you could face:
A minimum sentence of a jail term of no more than 180 days and a fine not exceeding $2,000.
A maximum sentence of detainment for life or no more than 99 years, and no less than ten years. You may also face fines that may not exceed $250,000.
The penalties differ depending on the substance and quantity of the substance in question.
The stakes are high even if you are facing what is considered a low-level drug possession charge. Calling us is the least you can do to ensure you are mounting the strongest defense possible for yourself or your loved one.
