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 Law Firm, P.C., 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.
