What to Expect in a Drug Possession Case
If you have never been charged with a drug possession case in Texas, then you may not know what to expect. Once you have been arrested and charged with possession, you can expect the prosecuting attorney to move quickly with the case. The attorney may collect evidence, build a case against you, and recommend a sentence. The judge may hear the prosecution’s arguments, weigh the evidence, and render a verdict.
All of this can happen within just a few days before you have time to weigh your options or decide how to move forward. As your lawyers, we can also look at the evidence, recommend a course of action, and proceed with defending you in court.
Regarding Prescription Drugs
According to Texas Code §481.115, prescription drug possession is a felony if you knowingly obtain prescription medication without a prescription from your doctor.
You may be arrested and charged with possession under the following conditions:
- Possession without a prescription
- Possession of multiple prescription drugs
- Possession with suspicion of trafficking
- Driving under the influence of prescription drugs
- Possession of large amounts of a drug
Prescription drug possession carries many of the same penalties as illicit drug possession.
