The United States in engaged in a War on Drugs or even more properly described as a war on persons who do drugs and Texas is leading the charge. In the event you have been charged with possession of drugs or manufacturing of a controlled substance, or intent to supply, there are some things Liberty County Criminal Attorney Andy Nolen thinks you should fully understand:

1. A drug conviction in Texas will result in the loss of your driver's license. That will then add surcharges and reinstatement fees and penalties that can run about $1000. You will additionally have to take the Drug Offender Education Program (D.O.E.P.).

This class is for men and women who have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug offense. This class will fulfill the obligation for education because of a suspended driver’s license. The standardized program is 15 hours in size taught in three-hour segments.

2. A conviction for drugs can result in your losing eligibility for particular types of federal financial aid for education. Quite a few schools may expel you in the event that the drug offense was committed on school premises. So not only can you lose your driver's license, you may also lose your diploma or degree.

3. In cases where you have been charged with a drug crime, it is almost a certainty that you will be tested for drugs eventually. That may be despite the fact that your on bond and even the initial time you go to the courtroom. Marijuana can continue to be in your system for up to 6 weeks. Items manufactured to defeat the system do not work, so do not really rely on them. Don’t do drugs of any variety while on bond or you risk having to deal with your bond revoked and going to jail. Likewise, you now appear to be an active drug user to the courtroom making your case considerably more difficult.

4. Drug residue including incredibly small amounts in a water pipe or plastic bag is a felony if it is a controlled drug. Marijuana must be a usable amount to be a crime.

5. The most typical ways drug cases are defeated are either that there was an Illegal Search and Seizure or that there was lack of Affirmative Links concerning a defendant and the drugs. If the search was bad, the evidence can be suppressed. Affirmative Links arguments are scenarios such as when there are Four people in a car and the state cannot prove the drugs belonged to any particular person. Generally known as, it was the other guy not me.

Liberty County Criminal Attorney Andy Nolen has used both of these tactics to have felony and misdemeanor drug cases dismissed.

6. The State must also demonstrate that the drugs were in actual fact drugs. Requiring that the “drugs” in question were in reality drugs can oftentimes get a case dismissed.

The happy client had a very depressed brother who was also charged with the exact same thing but got a court appointed lawyer who plead him guilty and he is now on Four years felony probation for nothing at all! If he violates his probation, they won’t reassess the evidence they will revoke him and incarcerate him.
