San Antonio Drug Crime

No matter how minor the charges against you may appear to be, the consequences
can still be severe. In addition to the criminal penalties assessed, drug
convictions can also result in the loss of a professional license, the
loss of student loans or welfare benefits, and even deportation if you
are not a U.S. citizen. There is a lot at stake. Make sure you have an
attorney with you to protect you.
The severity of sentencing depends upon:
- Type of drug
- Amount in possession
- Purpose of possession
- Location of the offense
- Prior drug history
- Relationship to other crimes
Even a Class B misdemeanor for the possession of marijuana can result in
up to 180 days in jail. To procure a prosecution, the state must prove
beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant knowingly possessed and controlled
the drugs found in his or her possession. There are a number of potential
avenues that we can explore for your drug crime defense. Find out more
about what you should do after your arrest. Don't hesitate to reach
out to a San Antonio criminal defense attorney for help.
