Georgetown, TX Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyer
Recently some states have legalized the use of marijuana. Texas is not one of those states. Possession of marijuana at any level is considered a criminal offense. I will vigorously defend you, regardless of the amount of marijuana you are alleged to have possessed. Texas marijuana laws are strict, and until our possession laws are reformed, I will have to fight and defend every charge in court.
In most cases, the primary goal of a marijuana possession defense is to avoid a permanent criminal record that could follow you for the rest of your life, and impact your career and future opportunities in ways you might never consider.
The severity of penalties for marijuana possession is based on the quantity of the drug in your possession when you are arrested. Marijuana Possession offenses carry possible penalties that vary from a Class C misdemeanor punishable by no more than 30 days in jail and a $1,500 fine all the way up to a Class 1 felony punishable by up to 15 years in the state penitentiary and a fine up to $25,000.
Facing criminal drug possession charges can be very stressful. You need someone on your side to be sure that your interests are represented in a court system that is not on your side. I am here to make sure you get the fair treatment you deserve and to help you get the best possible outcome. Marijuana possession penalties can be tough to navigate, but that’s what I do. I fight for you; I know the law, and I can help.
