Fort Bend County Drug Possession Lawyer
The United States in involved in a War on Drugs or more accurately described as a war on people who do drugs and Texas is leading the charge. If you have been charged with possession of drugs or manufacturing of a controlled substance, or intent to deliver, there are 6 things Fort Bend County Drug Possession Lawyer Andy Nolen thinks you should know:

1. A illegal drug conviction in Texas will result in the loss of your drivers license. That will then add surcharges and reinstatement charges that can run over $1000. You will also have to take the Drug Offender Education Program (D.O.E.P.).

This class is for people who have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug offense. This course will satisfy the requirement for education because of a suspended driver’s license. The standardized program is 15 hours in length taught in three-hour portions.

2. A conviction for drugs can result in your losing eligibility for particular types of federal financial aid for school. Some educational institutions may expel you if the drug offense was committed on school property. So not only can you lose your drivers license, you may also lose your diploma.

3. If you have been charged with a drug crime, it is almost a certainty that you will be analyzed for drugs at some point. That may be while your on bond and even the first time you go to court. Weed can stay in your system for up to 6 weeks. Supplements specially designed to beat the system do not give good results, so don’t rely on them. Don’t do drugs of any type while on bond or you risk having your bond revoked and going to jail. Also, you now seem to be an active drug user to the court making your situation more troublesome.

4. Drug residue such as microscopic amounts in a pipe or container is a felony if it is a controlled substance. Marijuana must be a usable amount to be a crime.

5. The most typical ways drug cases are beaten are either that there was an Illegal Search and Seizure or that there was lack of Affirmative Links between a defendant and the drugs. If the search was bad, the evidence can be suppressed. Affirmative Links arguments are occasions like when there are 4 people in a vehicle and the state can’t demonstrate the drugs belonged to any specific person. Also known as, it was the other guy not me.

Fort Bend County Drug Possession Lawyer Andy Nolen has used both of these methods to have felony and misdemeanor drug cases dismissed.

6. The State must also prove that the drugs were in fact drugs. Insisting that the “drugs” in question were in fact drugs can sometimes get a case dismissed.

Fort Bend County Drug Possession Lawyer Andy Nolen recently had a felony possession of a controlled substances charge dismissed just after requiring the state to test the “x pill”. Ended up, it wasn’t ecstasy at all and the case was dismissed. The thrilled client had a very disillusioned brother who was also charged with the exact same thing but had a court designated lawyer who plead him guilty and he is now on 4 years felony probation for nothing at all! If he violates his probation, they won’t reexamine the facts in his case, they will revoke him and incarcerate him.
