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.
