There is a mentality about drugs in the United States that "everyone" experiments with things like marijuana and cocaine and it's "not a big deal." Unfortunately, that frame of mind holds no weight in a court of law when you're facing drug possession charges. The bottom line is that whether you are selling illegal drugs or abusing prescription medication, you are breaking the law.
As a Waco drug crime lawyer, it is my job to look at the details of your case: why you were arrested, what happened when you were arrested and how the evidence was collected and analyzed. Certain things I will look at that can make or break your case include:
- How were the drugs recovered? Did the officers break any search and seizure laws?
- Was the substance actually illegal? Perhaps what you had looked like an illegal drug, but after testing, it will be revealed that it was not.
- What kind of testing was done on the drugs? Humans can make mistakes and machines can malfunction, but as a lawyer familiar with those issues, I can spot the errors.
If you were arrested on a drug-related charge in Texas, you are probably very nervous—but don't give up yet. You have the right to a trial, and with an experienced Texas drug crime lawyer on your side, you have a fighting chance at getting your life back.
