Were you charged with possession of a controlled substance?

Controlled substances are classified in different groups, which have varied degrees of punishment ranging from felony to misdemeanor. If convicted of a possession charge, punishment is determined by the amount/weight of the controlled substance and the substance’s classification.

What are the possible defenses to fight the charge?

This depends on the facts for each case. Your Travis County Criminal Defense Attorney could defend you on the following grounds ...

  1. The state lacks evidence to prove you knowingly or intentionally possessed the controlled substance.

2. Evidence, in the custody of the police, was mishandled and can’t be used as evidence against you.

3. Finally, it is also possible to fight the charges on the ground of criminal procedure, such as probable cause to stop the vehicle. This includes whether or not the police had a properly executed search warrant and/or whether or not you were properly mirandized.
