Sugar Land, Texas Drug Possession Charges
Drug possession charges often occur after car stops or domestic violence calls. In each instance, legal questions arise in regard to whether officers had probable cause to search a car, apartment or house and whether evidence was handled properly. As your drug possession lawyer, I critically review police statements, dashboard video of car stops, tapes of interrogations and other evidence in exposing mistakes and questionable tactics on the part of prosecutors and police officers.

As a criminal defense attorney, I represent clients in cases involving the following kinds of drug possession charges in Fort Bend County and Harris County, Texas:
- Illegal obtained prescription drugs
If prosecutors believe any assets or property you have were acquired through proceeds from illegal activity, they may initiate a criminal forfeiture to seize the property in question. This can result in frozen bank accounts, seized cars, homes and other property, which makes it difficult to finance a defense for drug possession charges.
If there is no question of your guilt, working with prosecutors to reduce the sentence or charge against you may mean the difference between a lengthy prison sentence and a chance to start over. The court may be inclined to place you on probation if your criminal record is relatively clean and you take the initiative to seek counseling for your drug problem.
While each case is different and I cannot guarantee a specific result, my experience as a drug possession lawyer and former judge places me in a unique position to understand what the court is looking for when considering a plea bargain.
Don’t assume that just because drugs were found on your property you have to plead “guilty” to drug possession charges. To schedule a free, completely confidential consultation, call drug possession lawyer David Hunter today at 281-265-1515 or contact us using the form on the right.
