Drug Possession Charges in Fort Bend County
Houston Criminal Defense Attorney
Under Texas Health and Safety Code, possession of any illegal or controlled
substance is strictly prohibited and if you are caught possessing any
amount of drug or paraphernalia you could be arrested and charged with a
drug crime. At Stornello & Correro Law Firm, PLLC, we understand that after an
arrest, you may have a lot on the line and without the assistance of our
experienced and aggressive attorneys, you could potentially be facing
immense penalties. The moment you or a loved one are arrested and charged
with drug possession of any kind or amount, you need to contact a Houston
Criminal Defense Lawyer from our firm right away.
Illegal drugs are classified in five different penalty categories and penalties
are dependent upon the type of drug and the amount of the substance that
was found in your possession. The charges can vary greatly depending on
the specific circumstances of your arrest but if you are convicted of
a drug possession crime you can almost guarantee to see jail time or prison
time, ranging from 180 days to life in prison and fines up to $10,000.
Felony offenses will carry heavier penalties and fines than misdemeanors
but each possession charge could potentially cost you valuable time, money
and freedom. If you have been arrested, you need to immediately retain
the services of our firm.
