Texas has some of the harshest penalties for drug possession. The possession of a dangerous drug of less than 28 grams is a Class A misdemeanor and could result in a jail sentence of up to one year. Possessing more than 28 grams of a dangerous drug is a felony and will result in harsher penalties if you are convicted.
As experienced and successful trial lawyers, we understand how prosecutors in different counties handle these cases. Some prosecutors may be willing to reduce or dismiss the charges depending on your completion of rehabilitation or community service.
