The United States in engaged in a War on Drugs or much 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 supply, there are some things Montgomery County Texas Drug Attorney Andy Nolen thinks you should know:

1. A drug conviction in Texas will result in the loss of your driver's permit. That will then create surcharges and reinstatement costs that can run more than $1000. You will also have to take the Drug Offender Education Program (D.O.E.P.).

This course is for individuals who have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony drug criminal offense. This course will fulfill the obligation for education because of a revoked driver’s license. The standard program is 15 hours in duration taught in three-hour sections.

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

3. If you have been charged with a drug criminal offense, it is almost a certainty that you will be examined for drugs at some time. That may be despite the fact that your on bond and even the very first time you go to the courtroom. Marijuana can stay in your system for up to Six weeks. Supplements designed to defeat the system do not really work, so do not depend on them. Do not do drugs of any kind while on bond or you risk getting your bond revoked and going to jail. Additionally, you now appear to be an active illegal drug user to the courtroom making your case a lot more problematic.

4. Drug residue such as microscopic quantities in a water pipe or plastic bag is a felony if it is a controlled drug. Marijuana has to be a usable amount to be a criminal offense.

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

Montgomery County Texas Andy Nolen Drug Attorney has used both of these strategies to have felony and misdemeanor illegal drug cases dismissed.

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

Montgomery County Attorney Andy Nolen not too long ago had a felony possession of a controlled substances charge dismissed subsequent to requiring the state to analyze the “x pill”. Ended up, it wasn’t ecstasy at all and the case was dismissed. The thrilled client had a very disappointed 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 absolutely nothing! If he violates his probation, they will not reevaluate the evidence they will revoke him and incarcerate him.
